Podar Jumbo Kids – Gandhinagar, Gujarat
Respected Sapana Madam and Richa Madam, I am writing this email to thank Podar School for providing quality education in a pleasant atmosphere. When we returned from Dubai, we were a little tense and worried in selection of school for our kid where he can find almost similar schooling that he was used to get there. We are of the opinion that a pre-school should teach kids new things in a way that the kids would feel that they playing while they are actually learning something new. They truly need appropriate attention, love and care at this age. A kid is considered as a God’s gift and so is a very special. They are indeed creative and have their own ideas that they express in their own way. As the expression of their ideas may not be as clear as it should be, they would need enough space and cooperation to express it fully. We are grateful to Richa Madam for their detailed explanation of how Podar Jambo works and how this play school differs from others. We thank a ton to our kid’s teacher Sapana Madam for taking gentle care when he is in the school. He is found eager to attend school (even on Sundays), so we believe that he is feeling much better here that Dubai, thanks again! Regards Aum’s Parents (Jr KG – B) Parul Madhu & Kamlesh Madhu

Ananya has greatly enjoyed the class and curriculum at the playschool All her teachers, Rukhsar, Akshita, Snehal – have all been very instrumental in helping her settle down and adjust to this big change of attending school. They are extremely patient, loving and assertive – all great must haves for teaching this age group. Ananya is very happy while going to school and also on coming back which indicates her comfort level with the teachers and class activities. The school has also kept us well informed about schedule, occurrences and updates and inviting us for interactive events like Sing Along which help us understand and see our children in school environment The curriculum has been very diverse, with English as well as hindi rhymes, art activities, sign language. Overall – we are happy with the school and curriculum. Diana does a great job at mentoring and coaching the teachers and its evident from her interactions during the activities that she is very involved and keenly interested in the kids development.

It was a great fun at Podar Jumbo Kids, Kamothe on Fathers day function @ 22th June. The Games, the Music was AWESOME…. I always used to hav this fun at home with my princess but at school it was much much different on that day. Only an hour we spent there but it was the bounding of a endless period. It brought me nearer to my princess and I really could feel how she looks at me… The first Greeting card ever I received from my princess is on the father’s day which was made in school even the handmade photoframe gifted at school with photograph of self & my princess is really really memorable and beautiful. I am really grateful to PODAR JUMBO KIDS, KAMOTHE for giving such a wonderful time and memorable experience , Thanks a ton…..! Manoj Deshpande

Dear Swati Madam, How are you? It’s been long time I was planning to email you regarding my son’s progress in Podar Jumbo Kids, Kolhapur. At the age of 3, we enrolled him in one of the big school in Kolhapur but we were not satisfied the way they handled the kids. With reference to one of our friend we enrolled our child in Podar Jumbo Kids, Kolhapur and the things changed drastically, it was kind of learning path for parents. We managed to attained all events and very impressed with the efforts been taken by all the staff members in Jumbo Kids. The annual day function and the Exit orientation for parents was mind blowing. The power point presentation content was extremely good. I could learn lot of things out of it and we got an opportunity as a parent to rectify our mistakes. The content was not just a simple formal power point presentation but it had deep meaning, great logic and intensive research behind it. We are encouraging other friends to enroll their kids in Podar Jumbo Kids. My son Aneesh has never enjoyed his previous school but he loves to go to Podar Jumbo Kids. He has improved his English communication and also vocabulary, we are just following feedback given in the parent meeting and the daily home play. I think teachers are taking lots of effort on every individual kid and that’s why it’s possible. We find us very lucky to have our child with Podar Jumbo Kids. I would love to share one of his video clipping where my son is making his own story and conversing in English very well. If it’s alright with you I can email you the video. Thanks and regards, Deelip & Trupti Mahajan

Dear Mam, The annual day function held yesterday, was so good, that I could not prevent myself from opening my Gmail account to write the feedback from my current busy office schedule. I would like to appreciate the organized manner in which the function was held. I admire the enthusiasm of all the teachers and support staff. Being a parent myself, I know its really not easy to make kids follow instructions and dance so well. You bought all the performances as a big surprise for the parents. It was amazing watching them performing so confidently on the stage and I appreciate the efforts of the Choreographer for each item presented. The theme chosen was awesome. What I always like of your program is the ‘Entertainment along with Learning’ experience which you give to the parents. It is true in terms of ‘Yahoo’ television experience as well as ‘News Channel’ theme which you presented yesterday. I would specially like to appreciate Archana Mam for the role of ‘Sheela’. It was so fluent and I would say, it is not easy to make people hold their eyes on a ‘Doll’. But Mam, with your voice behind, you actually made it happen. I always admire the sporting performance by all the teachers. It gives a ‘feel to follow’ in kids mind with a view that it’s not just ‘they’ who perform, but its also their teachers! Thanks for a lovely evening and memories that would stay forever with us! Gita Gosavi

Dear Sridevi, Sorry for the long pending feedback on both the events. Annual Day at Baal Bhavan–The very idea was excellent, we all at home actually were jealous of Shreyansh, because we never had the privilege of going to Baal Bhavan for School function…have promised to take him there again, once his sister’s exams get over. The function was very well organised, props used on stage were too good, costume was very apt. Nice to see kids, teachers as well as parents involvement in the event. I’m sorry, I missed the prop making event. Most surprising was that you had chosen songs in the regional language also for the dances, which is very rare nowadays, though it is very nice to add Kannada songs, and give equal importance to regional language many schools miss out on that. Kudos to Sridevi, Kalyan & Podar team for this. I thoroughly enjoyed my day at Baal Bhavan with the kids… It was indeed a day well spent… You even recognised parents for their participation of various kinds. Overall the program was very good. It would have been nice if the program was held in the evening as many more could have attended, as it was a working day for few of the parents. Coming to Fancy Dress, the theme selection was superb. It was nice to see tiny tots graduating from Podar!!! Request you to give advance notice in future for events like fancy dress to enable us to prepare for the same, Only two evenings were too short of a period. That’s it for now… looking forward for similar exciting and fantabulous learning journey of two more years at Podar, Malleshwaram. Shreyansh would be continuing his LKG & UKG too at Podar. Will get the admissions done at the earliest. Regards, Rekha S. Herenjal Shreyansh’s Mom

Dear Madam, Congratulations on your succcessful organisation of the Annual Day! First of all I’ll like to congratulate the center heads as well as the teachers and the support staff for making this a big success. I could not believe the little ones coming on stage and performing. I myself could not stand on stage till I was in the 3rd class, and I still remember that moment. Also I realised that the tracks chosen were a little longer which kept the little ones on stage for a good time. Good studied choice again. As for the teachers, special mention should be made for the spirit and passion of Ms Shagufta for standing the entire duration and helping the kids and cheering them, irrespective of going through the trauma of an accident..This could only happen in a happy family environment, which I believe it s at Podar Jumbo Plus, Goregaon. Last but not the least, the pep talk given by Ms Swati Vats. Her talk was really motivating and made us realise the importance of a formidable childhood in a human life. Congratulations once again and hope to see many such successful events in the future. Sedrick Alex D’mello

Good day, As a parent, in reply to your thanks giving email, would like say that the entire credit of the annual day success goes to your team of wonderful teachers, caring didis and the perfect supervision n management by nilam mam n sir. I truly enjoyed, and those very few hours simply made my day. The theme was so appropriately chosen, the songs were peppy and most of them refreshed my childhood memories. I loved Hema teachers theme introduction act. All the performances were beautiful and so was aisha’s performance. I can see a positive change and enhancement in aisha’s learning, behaviour, creativity and overall personality and thoughts. Most importantly, aisha was very excited,involved and happy throughout the annual day preparations and enjoyed the final day a lot. Infact she’s still carrying the hangover. What more does a parent need? Last but not the least, I would specially like to appreciate a child’s performance from the sr. kg class. I do not know the name but yes she was a part of the lezium dance. I felt her costume was getting loose but she did not give up and continued her performance with grace and confidence, although she was slightly uncomfortable. If we look at it, its a small thing for us but for a child to carry it off is truly remarkable. Finally, the annual day was rocking. All my praises and best wishes to Podar Jumbo kids Mira Road team. Thanking you, Fauziya Parent of Aisha (Junior.KG)
Podar Jumbo Kids – Nerul
Hello Ms Swati,
I am the parent of a child- Mitali Kaul, who is studying in the Sr. Kg Section B, in your Nerul Branch. Mitali is a special child, she is a high functioning child in the autistic spectrum. She has been in you school for more than 2 years now.
I would like to mention the support and good work done by the the headmistress, teahers and the didis of the school.
Starting from Ms. Brinda, Ms. Ulka, Ms. Rashmi and Mitali’s teachers Ms Priya Sridhar(earlier teacher), Ms. Nidhi(earlier teacher), Ms. Preeti Kaur(earlier teacher), Ms. Anamika(earlier teacher) and not to forget the Didis for her present and previous class, all the people have got together and supported the child.
We always believed that our child had the ability and with the right kind of support she can grown into a confident and self-sustained individual, who can contribute to the society. This belief has been strengthened by the support of your school , whose patient and caring approach has helped Mitali integrate in the school environment.
I am very sure that this would not have been possible without the vision and the guidance of a able leader like you who is truly involved and concerned about the future of the children. We have read your books in our family and are really happy to know that our child goes to a school under your leadership.
I take this opportunity to thank you and all the teachers and the headmistress and the didis again, who have helped my daughter so far and am very sure that with this support my child is going to achive her true potential.
Thank you again!
Parent of Mitali Kaul

I am a big fan of PJK Jamnagar. Every teacher, attendant, bus driver, and other staff deserve a big round of applause for their warm smiles and love that last through out the day and the year.

Respected Swati Mam
Good afternoon mam, I am Tejas Jakharia parent of Master Siddh Jakharia of Nursery at Podar Jumbo Kids Jamnagar.
I am writing this letter to you for thanking you to open a school like Podar in a small town like Jamnagar, its a pleasure to have such a big school at a place where most of people are thinking of traditional education system where in you just have to be a book worm and if you ask a question of any kind the answer will be "its written in book so it has to be like that" as in what we had studied in our school and colleges are the basic knowledge where in its just up to the books and when u come to real life its totally a different world.
But what I seen at Podar Schools are totally different where in i was totally shocked to see what kind of fluent English is spoken by a kid who is just in 1st standard also the premises of the school and ofcouse the teachers (one of the biggest role in developing kids future from the base to the graduation).
To be true to you I was feared of taking admission of my child in Podar Jumbo Kids as in for few reasons below
1. Its a new school in jamnagar also the teachers are new to it what will happen if i found wrong after taking admission???
Mam to be honest I m totally satisfied with the school right now and also proud to b a father of a podarite, All thanks to MS. JAYNA PABARI for making me understand at the time of admission and also gave me trust that my child will be safe and also develop according to his age not like other schools directly making a kid to write ABC from nursery itself
2. What about transport facility???
Mam this was the biggest issuse for me as its 6 kms from my house, (mam i know 6kms in mumbai is just a walking distance but jamnagar its a big 6kms)
but the bus service is excellent and also the staff of bus is very well trained and takes good care of kids
3. what if my child wont do his work properly???
here would like to say that my child is a moody person likes to hear stories, say poems but less of doing his pencil work and also dont like to do coloring and all but the teachers are very smart and had changed my kid for doing each and every thing of his very perfectly
4. what about the behaviour of teachers are they good??
Teachers are excellent and know each and every childs behaviour by the way they walk or they come to know the childs mood so they divert them according to their mood.. Tanvi mam and Ishita mam are his class teachers they are excellent in knowing the moods and also knows which child likes what and what are their habits.. They make them eat kids tiffin very properly also train them for doing all their work properly..
5. Staff members of the school
All the teachers are very good in nature and knows their duty very well very soft spoken very polite and have good knowledge of developing childs brain and abilities.
the Administration staff is also too good Mr. Denis one of the pillar of the school with lots and lots of knowledge. the office staff are also very polite and very co-operative.
Ms. Priyanka is also very polite and very co-operative person..
The housekeeping staff is also very nice and very well trained and co-operative.
Above all Ms. Jayna Pabari is the strongest pillar of PJK Jamnagar, who has strong will power and also can convince the other person. Also has a lot of knowledge of behaviour of kids as well as the parents too. she is a person who is very confident and very tuff.
about the programmes at school are very creative and also one of the best way to make kids know of everything they are going through...
Developing skills of kids by asking questions and they ask till they are not satisfied with the answer given to them is right.
the skill of asking questions is one of the best knowledge
My Kid is developing his skills and is becoming a very good person. he likes cleanliness and his behaviour is also changing for his good
Thank you once again for gifting such a nice school and Teachers to jamnagar
