I really appreciate the effort which you took for the story telling session for kids which they enjoyed including myself.
Dhiyara is learning a lot, especially whatever you teach in school she will repeat or act it the way you teach in class to me when we get back home especially what am i hiding and roll roll roll your asan. She will also give me signs to sing the particular rhymes. Like today she sat down all by herself and started doing "row row row your boat" rhyme with the actions.
Moreover she has started sitting at one place for her meals , learned sharing, a bit of patience and she has started reapting so many sentences which we speak , atleast last 3 words she will repeat what i say.
Plus she has learned so many vocabularies which i cant even imagine that she would know this particular word and same time also understand the meaning of it.
I keep a book in front of her and ask her to find an object and she points it out correctly.
Thank you so much meera mam for the effort and for the patience. I highly appreciate it.

My daughter Adira, joined Ardee when she was about to turn two and a half. Back then she could hardly speak because she was trying to pick up all three languages at the same time. Adira until now has pretty much kept to herself. As her journey in Ardee continued, we saw a few changes in her. However, one incident that caught my attention during her admission process in another school is what I would like to share today.
We walked in for an admission interview for Nursery in a prestigious school in Noida. Like every parent,I was a little apprehensive about how my daughter would perform, if she would talk or answer questions that she has been asked. To our surprise, she wasn’t intimidated by other parents or children who were already present in the waiting room. She was all chatty and confident and in no time began playing with toys that were present, offering cookies to us and other kids present there. We had a few parents who asked us which school we sent our kid to. When we walked in for the interview, Adira went on to pick up the most difficult puzzle, I was a little worried whether she will be able to fit in any piece but she went about fixing it by placing the head first then looking for the tail thereby completing it in no time. Next , she saw a bowl of candies lying next to her. She asked the teacher if she could have one. We also had the principle ,who was the one interviewing us, telling us that she is keeping her fingers crossed for our child along with us so that her name comes out in the lottery. Later, when we left the room, Adira realised that she had a little clay dough in her hand which was with her accidentally. She ran back inside to return it without me having to tell her.
I knew the interview had gone well but what really made me happy was the fact that she had picked up those little teachings being taught to her at home and in her school. Her manners, confidence, morals, being organised, becoming almost independent in most of her activities are definitely big changes that I have observed in her in the last one year. In our routine daily life we forget to observe the small little changes that have an impact on our children but on hindsight we realise how much our child has picked up and learnt.
A big thank you to Ardee, Noida for providing her a strong foundation. A special mention to her teacher Bhawana Ma’am, for holding her hand, teaching her and guiding her and giving us a spot-on her analysis of our child, for providing her an atmosphere where she could flourish. Thank you very much.

Dear Ms Khanna,
It was a pleasure meeting you the other day at Aradhya's school leaving. I wanted to write this earlier but could find the opportunity to write this at length now.
I am so glad I put my daughter in your school. In the past 2 years that she attended Ardee, she went from strength to strength and has blossomed so beautifully. When I was on the threshold of looking around for a school for my daughter the first thing I looked for was a warm nourishing environment which would instill in her the love of learning and teach her life skills which I believe would serve her for life. And I found that in Ardee.
Having been through an extremely strict convent education myself I instinctively knew that that was NOT what I wanted her to go through. I am a firm believer that a young minds inquisitiveness needs to be nurtured and given an environment that lets them bloom and flourish. Everyone eventually learn their ABC's and complex math algorithms in life but where is the school which teaches children a love of learning, courage, self confidence, gentleness in behaviour, speaking their mind, team work, developing a positive attitude and most importantly an abiding Love for School ?
Aradhya and me will always remember Ardee, for its wonderful welcoming Teachers, Archana Ma'am, all didi's and most of all the tiny hearts which were beating for each other every day.
A special word for Pragati for being the wonderful teacher and human being that she is. She is an extremely involved and caring person, very responsible and diligent towards her vocation. Her sincerity and love for the little tots and her enthusiasm for infusing young hearts with knowledge and wisdom shines through! I will always remember her for making every child feel special and appreciated. The PTM ( dreaded for most schools) always turned out to be music to all parents ears as the positives enumerated would always outweigh the negatives, if there were any at all.
For Aradhya, her Pragati Ma'am and Ardee will always be her first treasured germinating point.
With Gratitude and appreciation

A little late but this is to share a note of appreciation for the school for the extensive effort that is made to celebrate Annual Function. We would like to acknowledge the massive effort of efficient teachers behind this. Annual day meant a lot of running around, but we found that everything was well planned, well organized and promptly executed.
All Children performed extremely well, they took their role sincerely and all children seemed to be happy with what they did. I want to especially thank all the teachers, (especially Simran and Shrividya) I could see them standing there in charge tirelessly till they handed over our wards. This needs a lot of responsibility and good will. I even noticed the sincere effort to bring maximum students onto the stage. All these things need every discrete preparations.
We are proud to be associated with the institution and wish it grows to greater heights.

Dear Capt Archana
As I and my child bid farewell to the Ardee School, Noida, I wanted to drop a special note to you and the class directness Pragati, thanking you for making our journey at Ardee so amazing and fruitful. Since my child was going to a school for the first time in her life, our expectations were very high of the school and Ardee Noida lived up to our expectations in all possible ways.
Kudos to a leader like you- Capt Archana and directresses like Pragati and Vidya who ensure that the kids are taken care of in best possible way and the parents feel like a part of the everyday journey.
I remember when Amaira entered Ardee, she couldn't even speak properly. And to this day she is such a confident child and speaks flawlessly, all thanks to the effort put in by your staff. She speaks, sings, does colors, reads and writes with so much interest and all thanks to the personal attention she got at school.
We would have loved to continue at Ardee had it not been for this opportunity we got at work to move out of India. Thank you Ardee School for making our journey as parents so special.
A happy parent

Dear Team Ardee,
It was a joy celebrating Grandparents Day with you all. Such events make us feel special and also enable us to spend some time watching how small children are moulded with values they will have for the rest of their lives.
What was delightful to watch was the zeal with which the day was celebrated. We look forward to many such days.

Re: Feedback on Teachers Day
These were Beautifully penned down words which only inspired me. I completely agree with you in this aspect. I think it's very important to let the teacher guide our children & it's also important for us as parents to step back & give them the space they need.
I want the best for my kids so I need to let the teacher take the front seat & I'm happy in the backseat.

I think the letter very frankly and beautifully describes the attitude of today's parents and tries to restore the respect . I think we as parents are pampered a lot and an extremely pampered kid starts to misbehave.
If the parents can experience a day in a teachers life through a video or a hands on experience by being a teacher for an hour in the classroom it will help the parents empathise before setting impossible standards.

Hello Chanda Ma'am,
First of all let me wish you and your team of happy enthusiastic teachers a very very happy Teachers day.
Thanks for sharing your views. There maybe plenty amongst us who never view things from the other perspective and its important to let them be known.
Teachers and mothers are the people who give children their foundations and the ability to fly...roots and wings both in equal measure. As a parent and a professional I can tell you that I am what I am only with the hard work and blessings of my parents and my teachers who came into my life at different stages...and I am forever indebted to them.
As I watch the journey of my little one from taking her first baby steps into your welcoming corridors to the confident enthusiastic strides she now takes, forever eager to go to Ardee school, my heart is filled with joy and gratitude.
Youve got a happy enthusiastic bunch of ladies out there who are doing a marvellous job with shaping these tender minds. Cannot thank them enough for being the happy n warm yet firm educationists that they are.
As a society we all need to understand respect and trust each other implicitly. And that comes when we all are in the pursuit of excellence in our respective fields.
