The words “best” and “child” are synonymous with all parents. We spend every waking moment taking steps to provide the best for our little ones. This includes picking a school.

Children spend most of their childhood (their most precious years) at school. Choosing the right school for your child is, thus, one of the most crucial decisions of your life as well as theirs. But the good news is that it is not all that difficult. There are just a few things you should keep in mind:


Consider the location of the school in relation to your home and work. Is it convenient for you to drop off and pick up your child? Is it in a safe neighbourhood? These are especially important considerations if you are looking for a preschool.


Think about the size of the school. Do you want a small, intimate setting or a larger school with more resources and extracurricular activities? This is a personal choice, and thus, there’s no default right answer. Shortlist big and small schools in your preferred neighbourhoods and list the pros and cons of each. That will clear many things out for you.


Research the curriculum offered at the school. Does it prepare students for college and career success? ICSE and International curricula such as Cambridge are becoming increasingly popular, but we recommend that you study SSC and CBSE as well. All of them focus on overall child development. A little research will help you pick the one that is in line with your educational goals and values for your child.


Look into the qualifications and experience of the teachers at the school. Are they caring and dedicated to the success of their students? Speak to other parents during your visit to the school as well. There’s no better way to understand a school than to speak with the parents of current students.

Extracurricular activities

Consider the extracurricular activities offered at the school. Are there sports teams, music programs, and other clubs that align with your child’s interests and goals?


What are the safety measures the school has in place? Does it have an independent safety committee? Are there areas/corners with no CCTV surveillance? Does it have strict restrictions against the entry of outsiders? Make sure you have answers to all these questions and are positive that your child will be safe on the premises.


Lastly, consider the cost of the school. Are there tuition fees or other expenses, such as meals and transport, that may impact your decision? Are scholarship options available?


Ultimately, the best school for your child will depend on their individual needs, goals, and interests. It’s important that you research and consider all of the aforementioned factors to find a top school that will provide a strong foundation for your child’s education and future.
