A school is a child’s second home. A child’s behaviour, learning experience, and socialization process should be nourished within the confines of these institutions. While the world of education is constantly adapting to the changing times, parents are also making all possible efforts to build a robust academic foundation for their little ones in the early years of childhood itself. Highquality preschools can present a fun learning environment, impart pre-primary education and encourage overall development of child, which would eventually build a strong foundation for their academic journey. As more parents become aware of the positive impact of quality early childhood programs for the bright future of their children, increased demand for qualified preschools is expected to continue. Cashing in on this opportunity, Edufun Preschool, the Early Learning Division of one of the leading educational institutions in India - Glendale Academy International is providing firstrate early childhood education by boosting the self-esteem of children and optimizing their learning habits to mould them into future leaders.

Edufun provides high-quality pre primary education for children between the ages of 2 and 5, and optional Day care for children aged 2-7 years. Anjum Babukhan, Director, Edufun Preschool specifies, “We, at EduFun, believe that young children learn best with enriching exploratory experiences
that tickle the five senses and build the multiple intelligences. Our belief is that we should allow a child to be a child while he/she is still a child. In other words, we want children to cherish the experience called CHILDHOOD. EduFun encourages our children to be active and creative explorers; we persuade them to think, transform their experiences into conceptual ideas, and turn thoughts into actions.”

Interestingly planned class room structures of Edufun Preschool create a lively place for teaching and learning. This includes, setting up and maintaining interest areas in the classroom, organizing choice times during center activity, scheduling small and large group times, and creating a classroom community where children learn how to get along with others and solve problems creatively together.

Through exploration and enrichment, a loving and experienced faculty, and friendships that begin in toddler hood, children who come to Edufun build a strong foundation for a lifelong interest in learning.
