Preparing kids for school and choosing the right institution is a fraught topic for parents. It can feel like you’re deciding their whole future when they’re mere toddlers. It can also feel like you’re going back to school yourself as you try to learn about and make sense of everything on offer.

Early childhood education comprises several philosophies. The resources here will help you understand the differences between them so that you can decide if, say, a Montessori curriculum is really what you’re looking for. You’ll also find information on how to prepare kids for preschool, so the transition is as smooth as possible. (Understanding that parents continue to exist even when out of sight is a big part of it.)

Similarly, other resources here will help you understand the alphabet soup of India’s different education boards by explaining the differences between CBSE, ICSE, IB boards and more. And, since an education is only as good as the skills it instills, so you’ll also find discussions of what skills kids actually need to hone in order to succeed, and how schools can change to help them develop those skills.
