Extra curricular-sport

How many of us, want our kids to go that extra mile... and we as parents would not mind going or taking that extra effort, be it waking up early on a weekend, slogging with the kids, pinching out the extra Rs.

With more people on the higher income grade, and more competition in the parents (I dont think want to comment on the kids...)

Play schools in chennai

With the new era of two income nuclear families, the day care,play school have become necessities of people.

Here I have tried to list out as many as possible the playschools available in chennai. I have never used playschools, and I would foremost not recommend one to anybody, where else will a child nourish and nurture as a healthy human being than with parents/family/at home.

A word of caution, these care centres, are going to be the home away from home, so check the comfort zone of your child.
