Being the first day, an array of activities were conducted to engage them and make them feel comfortable in the new setting with story- telling sessions, art and craft activities, toy room fun etc. lined up for them. They were briefed about classroom routines and procedures. It was great to see them settled and mingling with their peers without any inhibitions. Apprehensive parents were happy to observe their child well-adjusted on the very first day,” said Rema Rajiv.
