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 al…

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 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…

SOCIALIZING IN THE TIMES OF SOCIAL DISTANCING

Man, or to be more gender neutral, the human being, is by nature a social animal. This isn't something which is taught to us, nor is it necessarily the result of extensive interaction on account of the huge numbers which represent our populace, although that might play some part in the whole process. What I am talking about is the fact, that even when we are all grown up, and free to make our own lifestyle choices, a very small percentage of us actually go the hermit route. 

We have a small body of kids who come to our day care and preschool. And most of them have friends there, other humans who are closer to them in age, and who are all going through the same development landmarks. I think the same happens to us as we grow older too. We are much more comfortable in being around other people with whom we have something in common, only we add a level of complexity like matching hobbies, likes and dislikes, political opinions and so on.

However, the last 4-5 weeks have taught us that …

PARENTING TIPS- EI AND TERRIFIC 2S

Parenting is a wonderful journey. It is also one of the biggest learning experiences in life. And while everyone has their own journey, and their own learning curve, it never hurts to draw on from other people's experiences. 

In light of that, we would like to share some parenting tips, based on our own journey and experience, based on various studies, and probably a lot of learning which have been carried through generations before us- instinctive, yet never given a name

1. In today's times of high stress levels and fewer people around kids, being emotionally intelligent is extremely important

What is emotional intelligence?
- Managing your emotions and working your way around them
In the first four years of their lives, maximum brain development takes place, so it is important to get the basics of emotional intelligence in place.
- Each child is different and so is the parenting style
- If your child thinks before reacting- is not impulsive- then you are going in the right directio…

LIFE IN THE TIMES OF CORONAVIRUS- OUR NEW VOCABULARY

This article came in HT City today, 5 April 2020. It was at least there in the Gurugram version, so I assume it must have been there in the Delhi version too. Not too sure of the national reach. Though of course, most of these terms have international reach, courtesy our wonderful social media, which let’s face it, is probably the major reason for both maintaining our sanity, and at times not. These terms are soon going to be part of our fancy dictionaries, i.e., as soon as publication of dictionaries resumes. Hmm, maybe I should check if the web versions, if they exist already have incorporated these. It’s funny, with the increased use of Google for searching the most basic of things, I have no idea how frequently Oxford or Websters update their lexicons, or whether with everything going digital, they even have a web version of their wonderful dictionaries. I only remember the various ones we had at home or carried to school, all in different sizes. Anyway, I digress. The idea of this…
