Brief: Mother’s Pride has a vast network of schools and we have a lot of experience in child education. We have learnt that the main purpose of a child’s education is to be able to make him a happy individual. The child should be successful and powerful in his endeavours and should contribute to the society and the nation.
Education should inspire and motivate children, so that they can become future leaders of our country. We inspire the children to change their signatures to autographs to encourage them to become successful entrepreneurs who can create employment for others. At Presidium, we believe that ‘education for life’ has three main components: academics, talent and life skills.
Many schools pay a lot of attention to academics, but the focus has to shift from rote learning to experimental learning. To foster future leaders, we have to make life skills like vision , mission, passion, commitment, courage, decision making, dealing with problem and dealing with failures are part of our education.
