The first exposure of a child after being at home for a couple of years begins at his/her first school which may be a play school or regular school. As a parent, schooling is one of the early and very important decisions to make for our child. Not only does this involve a lot of effort but a lot of time and money!!
Being a working mother, constraints are even more.
We relocated from Manchester, UK in 2015 but I moved along with my 3 yr 6 months old daughter earlier than my husband due to my work here in India. Before I could start with work, I had to first get my daughter to a school so that she could be engaged. I visited a couple of schools the names of which I do not want to mention but at that point in time I found only MRIS comparable to the schools in UK as I had been to schools here. I found educational style being more practical than theoretical.
So, it was a no brainer for me to get my daughter admitted in MRIS-14, being closest to my house. I took an independent decision without involving any one about her schooling.
Post admission, I heard lots of comments on the so-called wrong decision that many people said I had made. But I really never felt it was wrong.
Fast forward, when school started my daughter was never reluctant to go to school, despite never having been to a play school. MRIS has been her very first school. She gradually developed a very close connection with her teachers and this was amazing for me to see. I found her pumped up by her teachers really well. Now she is in Grade -III but precisely, I have always found her so connected with all her teachers that I am surprised how the teachers can work so hard to keep up to expectations of each child individually.
Keeping up with the difficulties of present day scenario, I appreciate how within a very short span of time, MRIS introduced Microsoft Teams to all the parents & teachers. The staff got quickly aligned with the software and its nitty-gritty. Within no time, children are able to attend regular classes and learn while being home. This is a leap forward by the management and teaching staff in the times of crisis. They have proved their capabilities beyond doubt in such unprecedented times.
The world is looking for a future full of children who can create, innovate and change the world. I personally feel that doesn’t happen with forced study. One has to be open-minded to figure out what it is that you can be best at.
This is what I feel MRIS helps us parents to find out for our child…
That’s very difficult stuff…
People spend their whole life not knowing this.
I would be really thankful if only this one thing could be sorted by the time my child finishes school.
I trust MRIS for this…
MRIS has proved its efficiency and capability to keep up to the promises of its children.
