About Us


Dear Parents

Greeting from Morning Glorie!

When we set out on our adventure of child care, we had hoped to provide a platform for complete child care solutions. As we started, we realized that that is not just a huge world, but also a huge responsibility, which could not and should not be taken lightly... we were talking about children, our future… and we were talking about other people’s children

So, we decided to go slow on the journey. We decided to not jump into it all at once but take it one step at a time. We started in 2011 as a very small unit, a small preschool and day care, with just two 18-month olds (our heartfelt thanks to the parents of those two children, we would never be where we are without your trust and support).

And so, our journey began… we set out with some ideas in mind, and small preschool curriculum. And gradually we started to fine tune our ideas, work and rework our curriculum, and proudly got our first batch of graduates of the learning program in 2014. We also took care of children across age groups, from 3 months to 6 years to begin with, and understood that the whole journey wasn’t just preschool or childcare, it was a parenting journey.

It is a big world, which centred around each individual child. Each individual child has so many relationships around them- the parent, the teacher, the friend, the learning, the school, the Didi and so many more; their interactions with the child, their interactions with each other. It is a delicate ecosystem, which keeps evolving as each child grows.

And so, in this journey of ours, we have learnt a lot of things, with each child, with time, with each other…  sometimes we may notice a pattern, sometimes there may be two parallel roads which may never meet, or crossroads which meet and then move apart.

And we feel, that the time is now right for us to share the experiences from our journey. Our experiences across age groups, personality types, educational patterns, celebrating individual differences, finding common threads, all centred around children. We hope some of these experiences resonate with your own, and that some of these experiences also help you when you hit a road block.

Of course, each child is different, and we are not here to preach any guidelines. When bringing up a child, there is no right and no wrong, it is an individual’s journey. But if somewhere along, we can help each other, it would make us all just a little more complete.

We would be very happy to have your feedback and suggestions, as also for you to share your experiences, they would give us a different insight, and make us just a little richer.
Cheers!

Life as the "New Normal" continues

It is a difficult time all round. We have now completed four months since the lockdown was first announced. Most of you continue to juggle between household chores, professional commitments and child care without any third party support. Day cares remain closed, and understandably so, the risk is still too high. Honestly, even if day cares were to be allowed to reopen, it would take a lot of weighing the pros and cons to get to the stage where you would be comfortable in sending your children out of the house.

Parents, lots of strength to you. You are all heroes for managing this.

But things obviously are difficult for children too. For the smaller ones, perhaps this is just the way of life they know. Staying inside the house is all they can remember having ever done. But the slightly older ones are facing their own challenges. And when you share those challenges with us, we can only hope to offer an encouraging word of hope.

A child, when he went out on a drive with his parents, only…

Musings of a Pioneer: Playschool Learning for Toddlers (Part 1)

“Stunt, dwarf, or destroy the imagination of a child, and you have taken away their chances of success in life. Imagination transforms the commonplace into the great and creates the new out of the old,” said Lyman Frank Baum, the famous author of children’s books who wrote The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels, more than a century back. I must have been around two years old when my parents decided to send me to a playschool. My mother was a stay-at-home mom – and my younger brother was born a year and a half after me. It must have been tough for her to take care of two boisterous little ones all on her own. I may have been away from home for maybe only three hours in the morning; but it probably gave her  much-needed space to get ready for the battles of the day. What I still remember distinctly from my playschool journey is  a yellow coloured inflatable water pool in which around 10 or so children would gleefully jump for water play. We were a happy lot, without a care in the worl…

LIFE IN THE TIMES OF CORONAVIRUS- #COWORKERS

"One of my 'co-workers' just flipped out because one pancake, of four, didn't have chocolate chips." “my co-worker (who is NOT the dog) licked me while I was on camera to get my attention and also as a joke.”-
“My co-worker keeps trying to steal my computer while shouting "I want do business!"” “My coworkers got into a screaming fight over a single Lego piece.”
Add to these posts like my co-worker yelled to go do potty while I was on a conference call. Or my co-worker doesn’t let me get on a conference call if he/she isn’t on the camera either. Welcome parents, to wfh during corona times. Tweets like these are just a way to infuse some humour in a tough situation. Because you know what? This is the best way for you to weather this storm. Most of you (who don’t regularly wfh) are used to having your kids at school, or a day care centre, and enjoy (or at times do not enjoy) a very different company. Now, you are juggling two worlds simultaneously. My sympathi…
