|Tips#1: Read Together Every Day|
|Read to your child every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close together. Bedtime is an especially great time for reading together.|
|Tips#2: Give Everything A Name|
|You can build comprehension skills early, even with the littlest child. Play games that involve naming or pointing to objects. Say things like, "Where's your nose?" and then, "Where's Mommy's nose?" Or touch your child's nose and say, "What's this?"|
Communication is the most important aspect in the growth of every child. Therefore maintaining a correct and balanced student teacher ratio i.e 1:10 (one teacher for every ten students) is necessary.
One such primary school that gives this aspect importance is the Little Millennium School founded in 2006 and successfully running over 240 pre- schools all over India with the help of their well trained team. They believe in giving their primary kids a lot of personal attention which benefits them in their social, emotional and educational dimension.
Pre-school classrooms are no longer dull with just a blackboard and desk- chair. Schools are putting in a lot of effort to make their classrooms look vibrant and bright with informal seating. After all a school is a child's second home and kids have to feel as comfortable as they would feel in the surroundings of their home.
|Tips#3: Say How Much You Enjoy Reading Together|
|Tell your child how much you enjoy reading with him or her. Look forward to this time you spend together. Talk about "story time" as the favorite part of your day.|
|Tips#4: Be Interactive|
|Engage your child so he or she will actively listen to a story. Discuss what's happening, point out things on the page, and answer your child's questions. Ask questions of your own and listen to your child's responses.|
At the Little Millennium pre-school from hygiene to the learning aids everything is very well thought of so that kids can make the most of every moment spent at their nursery school.

Primary schools today use props and other visual materials in the classroom in order to stimulate the pre-scholars' imagination.
Puzzles, picture books, art material and construction material of latest techniques are being used.
Little Millennium pre primary school offers different effective mode of teaching like the play-way method, theme – based and Montessori method are amongst a few of them.
The objectives of the pre- schools these days are:
-To encourage the physical development
-To encourage children's imagination
-To create a happy and joyful environment
-To provide a range of experiences of children learning
Always remember, you are setting up the children for a lifetime of learning and you should create excitement around them. The more hands on activities and learning styles the primary kids engage into, that much more will they learn and retain.
