I am a parent wanting to get my child admitted in LKG next year. I want my child to learn lessons as well as learn how to be creative as it’s necessary for his overall development. Can you suggest me schools where I can admit my child?

Just as the kind of home the child grows up in, plays a deciding role in determining what sort of personality the child will develop, so does the school/college. The kind of school he attends shapes his patterns of behaviour and his concept of himself as a person both directly and indirectly. Also, schooling has direct effects on children's educational achievement. The basic skills provide the foundation for later "subjects".
Therefore when choosing the right school, look out for one that follows a curriculum that is developmentally appropriate, program that meets the needs of and promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of the child and also the adults-parents, staff and administrators-who are involved in the program. Go for a school with montessori system of education (which is 103 years old system) and which mainly provides natural learning. Some of them are: Roots Montessori School, Road no 6 Banjara Hills; Samagna Montessori House of Children, Saidabad; Bhavisya Montessori House of Children, West Marredpally, etc. Refer to link:
