Here is my personal exp. I had enrolled my 2 year old daughter in their PG


1) The teachers are not trained to handle children with care and affection which is the foremost important aspect of a PG teacher. Leave apart teaching the children, the teachers are not interested in what they are doing. they only blabber some stuff for 15 min and call that as curriculum teaching which is wrong.


2) The teachers are changed after every 15 - 20 days even for PG. So children find it difficult to adjust with the new teacher.


3) The Centre Head is incapable of the job she is doing. She is not monitoring the teacher's behavior towards the children and in fact she finds it difficult to speak simple English.


4) The day care teacher in this branch acts like that of a bouncer in a pub. She really treats children like toys and not like a human being.


5) The children are held like toys and stuffed into the so called'class room' crying their life out, puking, getting afraid.


6) The staff doesn't even speak with children to calm them. They only say'DONT CRY!', 'KEEP MUM!' . how can they behave like this with PG children?


7) After this they try to'teach' some 2-3 students who are not crying(because they have become indifferent to constant torture) . others keep crying and shouting. I have also seen the teacher singing national anthem standing in one corner with not a single child paying attention to her or even aware of what the teacher is doing.


8) The Class room for playgroup is suffocating and it has no ventilation. Now, the strange observation is that the teachers tell us that they can't teach children if they are not in class room. The result is that even those children who are enjoying the play area are forced to go inside and here comes the role of the Day care bouncer to stuff children into the class room even if the children are afraid of going inside in to the classroom.


9) The children are  afraid, scared, and are in constant fear and often feel that they are betrayed by parents who leave them there for no good.


10) If the children are outside in the play area, I have seen  the day care teacher instructing children on which toy/ride to play. this way you are breeding another batch of dumb indivisuals with no individual choices.


Here are my suggestions for you to avoid this kind of failure -


1) The most important aspect is that the children should feel that it is a play time. The infrastructure of the center is very good but it is not used by the staff.  The PG kids should be taught while playing. The class room shouldn't be so essential for PG Kids. In fact the PG children learn while they play. So it is not necessary to sing a rhyme in the classroom only atmosphere. The teachers can sing a rhyme in the play area and still the children will learn. This has been tested by the US and the European association of playgroup teachers.


2) If a child is cranky they should not be left with some maid, instead, a properly trained teacher should take care of these kids.


3) Apart from the eating time, the rest of the time should be completely utilized by the teachers doing singing, talking, showing new things to children to develop the curiosity of children.


4) When the child is crying the staff should  not threaten them and show big eyes and make them afraid. Instead, they should try to divert the child's attention. The first thing they should do is to gain enough trust within their group of children so that children should not feel fear. They should feel love and affection. The teachers should not be changed as per Center's need. This affects the child's trust in teacher and they take more time to settle down.


5) Atleast one teacher should have completed the teacher training and must be capable to implement the teachings related to the playgroup.


7) The teachers are completely blank about why the child cried, why the child got hurt(even physically). But in our case, our daughter told us everything what happened and why she cried. In summary it was the inability of the teachers to handle the situations.


I had opted for this branch as it is the same area where I stay and I thought it is well known, reputed so must be a good institution. But within few months all my expectations were shattered.


Gone are those days when the children who cry at school were considered as not good.Today parents know that if a child cries and dislikes some people or place and shows it that mean the child has above average intelligence. The children who can take shouting and scolding and man-handling it is because the same happens to them at home . But for the kids who are handled carefully at home(like they should be) such hostile environment is not suitable. I had a misconception that The tree house is a modern school with new Fit to todays world methods. But found it to be completely opposite.
