Overview

Jumbo Kids is a Preschool with a difference. The Jumbo Kids curriculum is designed to give children a healthy balance between learning and leisure time. Our unique system of education is known as ‘Kiducation', which means that it follows the child's needs according to his developmental stage.

Our teachers are taught to reconsider old or traditional concepts before applying them in the classroom. Old songs, ideas and theories are excluded and new ways of thinking are introduced to the children. Age old nursery rhymes and fairy tales or folk tales are updated to resonate with present day values and to bring about positive teaching with them.

All activities at Jumbo Kids are undertaken in a completely uncompetitive environment. Every child is a “Winner”. We believe that the focus is not at the perfection of the activity that the child is doing, but at the process that he is learning.
The activities are full of fun yet educational at the same time. The children are given full freedom to explore the world around them. Teaching and learning is not just restricted to classrooms, the children move from one area to another:-

Atelier – For art and craft
Mathemagician – For counting and number fun.
Dolls house – For role play
Dig ‘n' dip – For sand and waterplay.
Traffic park – For gross motor development
Vegetable patch – For natural study.
A well stocked library – For reading skills
Eurythmics studio – For motor development

My daughter went to Podar Jumbo Kids this year for Nursery.
First, the good part- they have a good curriculum that doesn’t place too much pressure on kids and lets them be kids. All activities were enjoyed by my child, and the teachers took good care of her.
The negatives – they don’t allow daycare parents to send food from home for their kids. That makes it difficult for a child who is used to eating only certain foods at home and can’t adjust to the standard school menu. However, by the end of the year, my child has begun to develop a taste for certain vegetables which she used to hate earlier, so not sending food actually worked out for the best in a way.

I had a good experience at Podar Jumbo Kids. Excellent environment, child-friendly activities, and caring teachers. The headmistress was always available if we had a concern.
The only issue we has was with their daily snack menu which only allowed vegetarian food, and banned Maggi, Kurkure, Lays and other foods from school. I found it difficult to send appropriate snack items to school, because almost everything that my son likes to eat was banned from his snack box.
I think they can be a little flexible about snacks since so many children are fussy about food these days. I understand that junk food is bad for kids and this is the reason for the strict snack plan, but some parents will find it difficult to pack snacks, especially if your child loves packaged snacks. Otherwise, we had no complaints with the school.

After a lot of investigations into preschools, I chose Jumbo Kids (insert center here) for my son’s playschool. I have been happy with the choice so far. Bright and welcoming facility, with cheerful teachers. Security is top- notch and they have a good system in place for pickups and drop offs, which was quite reassuring for me.
Prior to joining, I was informed that there would be a snack menu every week and snacks would have to adhere to the chart. This was difficult for us and it was the only negative we had. Planning snacks daily was a major tsk for us, since the options were limited and we are non-vegetarians. (The school only allows veg food.) Other than that, it was a great experience, and my son loved the activities and his teacher!

We chose Podar Jumbo Kids for our daughter’s Nursery program this year. Very child-centric approach that places no pressure on kids and yet encourages learning. There were very few books in the admission kit, but I don’t believe school books are necessary for a Nursery child anyway. In any case, the school had a well-equipped library with frequent book sessions every month. I didn’t want a high-pressure environment for a 2.5 year-old, and the school provided the easy-paced, yet effective learning system that other branded schools only talk about.

I first admitted my son into Jumbo Kids for the Nursery program, and he just finished Junior KG this year. It has been a great experience. Initially I was quite concerned, because there is absolutely no book-based writing in the Nursery program, and I was worried about how he would cope with writing in Junior KG.
The writing pace in Junior Kindergarten was quite slow at the beginning, but I have found it to be quite right for my child. By the end of the year, he was able to complete all his writing milestones, which was good enough for me.
Overall, I like their child-friendly, slow-paced teaching style, which really lets children be children, and enjoy their preschool years, without placing them in a heavy pressure- cooker style environment.

This is a great school - welcoming and warm environment for kids, and lovely teachers! My son spent two years here and was very happy. He loved his teachers a lot, especially (insert some teacher’s name here)!
At first, I did have concerns about the slow pace of writing. The school doesn't believe in putting small children under pressure to write. I was especially concerned about how he would cope in a mainstream school. He is now in UKG and writing with no problems. The school focuses heavily on personality development, social skills and language development, and all of those improvements are clear to see in my son now!

I sent my daughter to (insert center here) for her Nursery program and she loved it! They took great care of her, and the teachers, staff and center were always easily available and accessible to address my concerns.
I think they could vary the menu a bit at their day care facility. They don't allow parents to send food from home, which I can understand, but then these are preschoolers, and the only issue that I had with the school was. Otherwise, there were no complaints. Events at the school were amazing, very well organized, and encouraged parents to participate. I especially loved the Master chef event that they had last year as well as the Father's Day celebration.

Overall, this is an excellent school. My son went there last year, and the positives were many:
Beautiful facility and child-friendly environment
Caring teachers
Great activities at school
Regular events for parents, siblings and even grandparents. These gave all of my family members a chance to enjoy with my son at school.
The not- so -positives:
Admission kits were quite meager-there were very few items, compared to other schools, and the kits can be improved on.
Kit could also include more books.
However, these were very minor points, and the school more than made up for the loss of these items with their activities and events. Overall, I would recommend the school without a hitch!
