Ans 12. Yes, we do have uniform for all the grades and the frequency of wearing it differs from grade to grade. This uniform will be a part of student kit given at the time of admission. Uniform at school not only provides a sense of togetherness and equality among children but also gives them a neat and a well groomed look.

 
     
  Q13. Do teachers at The Prathams communicate in English with children?  
     
 

Ans 13. For the first few days, we give more importance to kids getting adjusted to the new environment of school and so we do not hesitate in conversing with the child in a vernacular language, especially of toddler and nursery grade. Once the child gets used to school and the new environment he/she is in, English takes the place of vernacular language gradually. Thus, English becomes the mandatory mode of instruction in school, giving child a comfortable language learning experience.
