Five important factors to be shared…..
Most of the people in India get attracted to the preschool business for the simple reason that it provides easy money, but it is important to be ethical and not start a preschool just for the sake of money. If you intend to start a preschool in India, start it with an intention to do this business in most the most morally dignified manner, because preschools are not just businesses. A preschool plays an important role in molding the child and forming the base for his or her education.
1) Get permissions to start a preschool. Presently, there is no central law regarding the registration to start a preschool, though some state laws exist such the ‘Private School Education Acts’ in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and others. Many other states have letters issued by the State Government (under the guise of RTE Act), regarding the starting and running of a preschool. For more details, you can consult a Preschool Consultant regarding this. ‘Preschool for Child Rights’ is the most popular and proper consultant regarding this. Image titled Start a Preschool in India
2) Name your preschool. Name holds a lot of significance. Do not copy others’ names, as it is illegal as well as unethical. Start your thought with this line – “Why am I starting a preschool and what do I intend to achieve by this?”
3) Define your budget. You need to invest on things like business research, project know hows, rental advance, toys and equipment, furniture, colours and paints, some changes in the rooms, etc.
4) Develop a preschool curriculum. You should have proper curriculum; as the adage goes ‘quality sells itself ‘ The government of India is also coming up with curricular laws, making it mandatory for preschools to have proper and good curriculum.
5) Select a location. Location also plays an important role. In preschool marketing, location has a great value. Besides, do not do not indulge in any cheap antics to market yourself. Allow this formula to serve as a guide:
Select a good location for the school.
Build a good preschool.
Bring quality toys and equipment.
Bring quality curriculum.
Be ethical and carry high moral values, and none of these require major investments.
