The state education department is excited about Monday’s development because it will see schools in the state reopen completely after being closed from March 2020 after the epidemic began, officials said.
Meanwhile, more and more parents are contacting school management to resume classes because they too need to return to work.
KVS Sheshasai, CEO of Euro Kids International and Kangaroo Kids Pre-K Division, said: “We have been working on our recovery and protection protocol for the last two to three weeks. “How to safely resume pre-school. Once the government and parents agree, classes will resume next week.”
In the last 18 months, children have been mainly spending time without too much social interaction with their parents. It will take time for them to adjust to a social situation.
“When they return, the first priority is not to include them in the learning process. The first priority is to settle them,” he said.
According to WHO guidelines, masks are not mandatory for children under the age of five.
“We will ensure that staff are fully vaccinated, classrooms are extremely hygienic and properly disinfected, proper ventilation is provided. Initially, classes will start with a low number of two to three days and will gradually increase,” he said.
Pushpa Hawargi, who runs Eurokids at Rukmini Nagar and Jalahalli Cross in Bangalore, said the focus would be on gradually bringing the children back to routine which could take one to 15 days.
“Two to six year olds are very important for children because their acceptance at this age is like a sponge. The overall development of a child will be emphasized. We are all carefully prepared, he added, adding that children will be safer. In school than in malls and restaurants.” He said.
