New terminology

Just learnt that nursery is one that is attached to a school and takes children under 5 years old (& above 3yrs). Preschool on the other hand is one that has no connection with any school and takes children under 5 years old (& above 2yrs) . Nursery is run mostly from 9:30am to 11:30 am (2hrs), whereas preschool is run from 9am to 12pm (3hrs). I am glad Avni goes to a Preshool. also, I think kids in preschool will get programmes designed with more attention paid to, considering that age group in mind. I am sure  in nursery as well they design the programmes keeping the concerned age group in mind  but the attention they can pay to it will be more in preschools because that is the only thing they are doing.  In Avni’s preschool they  keep the 2 to 3yrs olds separately, which I  like.
