COVID-19 Precautions: These are a few of the precautions we need to take to ensure the safety of our families. Admission to the class, is at the discretion of Deepa Krishnan.

Art & Craft activities are entertaining and at the same time beneficial to children in many ways. It helps them with decision making abilities, improves concentration, boosts their self-confidence, increases their problem-solving abilities and also improve their academic performance. Research has proved that Art could help create a better S.T.E.M student!
