We have always believed in these two adages
If we were to reflect on these thoughts, it would be quite clear that kids have a very important role to play in our society. However, sometimes, we overlook this fact and don’t understand the magnitude of early childhood. At Planet Kids, we ensure that a kid’s development is holistic and just not limited to academic knowledge. Our entire infrastructure and learning experience are structured around this, making it a wholesome experience for the kids. Here are some of the most distinguishing features:
Our children develop a good percentage of their learning skills before they turn five years. Hence, it is very imperative that these skills are honed properly. A proper preschool structures this growth better. The western world, where maximum research on ‘early-childhood education’ has been done, also concurs that such a school will aid the kid’s future development. In addition to very high academic success, the children from preschools like Planet Kids also are very sociable.
There is ‘sea-change’ that starts around the second year of a kid. Rational views, organizing easy errands, basic oral communication and coming out of home are some of the improvements that you would notice in the child. A right urge at this age aids the kids to react positively. At this crucial age, some essential qualities like studying, conversing, having faith in oneself and caring for others would be developed with the right setting.
Our teaching methods and the curriculum adopted are based on the best practices and methods available around the globe. The curriculum has been devised based on extensive research done by leading people from institutions like Harvard, Cambridge and IIMs. It is largely inspired by Dr. Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, Montessori, Steiner, Froebel and Play-way methods. Some of our activities are derived from the Montessori Method of teaching, but not limited to it.
At Planet Kids, we believe that appreciation and showing unconditional love go a long way in developing the self-esteem of a kid. We have enough systems and processes, which ‘monitor’ the progress of your kid. Formative and summative assessments and observations help parents gauge the progress of their kid and also facilitate the teachers to give personal attention in the required areas, if any. The key aspect here is that we don’t benchmark one kid against another. Our structure gauges where your kid stands vis-à-vis his/her own earlier performance.
Our teachers are most passionate about training your kids. Apart from being qualified to handle any kind of challenge, they are also regularly trained in the latest pedagogic methods. This gives them the tools to provide cutting edge education (academic & non-academic) to your kids.
We take pride in the fact that we are one of the few preschools in the country that maintain the international norm of 1:7 for the adult-child ratio. Our classrooms can comfortably accommodate 18 to 20 kids
Potty training is an important aspect in the growth of a kid. Generally, most kids are ‘toilet-trained’ before they start their pre schooling. At Planet Kids, as a routine we encourage kids to use the washroom at regular intervals between classes, which over a period of time, makes the kids become self-reliant and request help, if needed.
Our initial days are filled with activities like singing, dancing and just ‘doing nothing’, which makes the kids feel at home. Some kids take a longer to adjust, but we provide individual attention. Until we feel that the kid is comfortable and ready, we don’t involve him/her in any academic/non-academic activities.
Planet Kiddy Care, the day care facility at Planet Kids is available at select centers. You can reach out to the center closest to you and find out if it is available with them. Planet Kiddy Care is just not a place for eating, sleeping and watching TV. We have devised structured programs based on extensive pedagogic research that involve scheduled activities. These activities ensure that the kids not only have a refreshed nap, but also have enough ‘food for thought’.
When kids pass out of Planet Kids center, it acts as a strong point on their performance index and most good formal schools gladly accept them. Over the last decade, all our kids have gotten placed in the best formal schools across the country. We train the children through the year to enter mainstream schooling system with great ease. Our programs are structured to prepare kids for any formal school with any syllabus, be it CBSE, ICSE, IB, IGCSE etc.
Our academic term is from June to March. However, for our playgroup and nursery children, the admission is throughout the year

We have a host of programs during vacations. These include summer camps, winter camps etc., which provide a good break from academics yet at the same time they help enrich their minds. They are aimed educative yet fun-filled. Please talk to your nearest center to know more.

The Activity Hub is suitable for children between the age group of 2 years to 10 years. Please contact your nearest center for the details.
Writing is a much-evolved physical activity. At Planet Kids, we ensure that kids are trained in a scientific manner to develop pre-writing skills, before they actually start formal writing. These include activities that are aimed at improving the finger muscles at the playgroup level. At Nursery, kids will start writing.
Based on kind of knowledge that needs to be imparted, the material provided varies. Nursery, LKG and UKG students are provided with content books and work books. The Play group children are given worksheets.
One pair of uniform is provided to each child as a part of the admission kit. The kids would wear it once a week and on occasions such as field trips, sports day, etc.
