"The mediocre teachers tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires."
- William Arthur Ward

At Areca School, the focus is on participatory and interactive learning. Therefore, our teachers inspire the students to learn by creating a conducive atmosphere. The students are encouraged to become active agents of the teaching-learning process, so as to make it an all – inclusive education.

In addition, latest technology and up-to-date pedagogic methods are used to give our students a competitive edge over others.

Play School

The first introduction of the school for a small baby is an impression for life. This time of life decides the total attitude of the child forever. Coming straight from the cosy lap of the mother to a new place with strangers around is not a very easy transition.

Areca School realizes every bit of how to make this transition a smooth and happy experience. We realize that your child’s first images, forms, feel of toys & play equipments, and surroundings have to be child-friendly and conducive to his/her all-round development.

At Areca, we create an ambience that is quite like a child's paradise!

At Areca's Play School a child is exposed to a whole new world of learning

  • Recognition of Alphabets & Numbers.
  • Introduction to colors & Numbers.
  • Introduction to colors & shapes.
  • Introduction to vegetables & fruits, birds & animals.
  • Toilet training.
  • Eating, washing hands & proper hygiene.
  • Familiarisation with the things around.
  • Paper Tearing and Colouring.
  • Free Play and adjustment with the peer group.
  • First introduction to prayer.
  • Drawing & Scribbling.


Half of an adult's intelligence is formed before the child turns 4… another 30% by the time he/she is 8 years old... And the remaining 20% by the age of 18. 2 years is the right age for your child to start going to pre-school. "Transform your child's future.... Start early...."
