Comfort or a better brand : what to choose?
May 10, 2017 4:14am CST
This is about the play school my son will be going soon. he is 2 year old. I have a play school just next to my apartment. It's a chain of one of the leading playschool groups in india. This branch is a new one and the set up is not so big. But as it's so near to my place, it sounds comfortable as my kid won't need to travel and we are just meters away in case of anything. The next option is one of the very good international brand playschool. It's huge and a wonderful set up. But they are far away, around 10-12 km from my place which will mean 40 minutes of traveling on one side. They have pick up and drop facility for kids. Now this leaves me double minded, which should i choose? At times i feel, i should think about the comfort as play school hardly matters. Other times i feel i should send him to the best. Can anyone here help me choose?

The one near your home have you toured it? Even though it may not be the best name - for me I'd go with the one near your home, as long as it's a good playschool Imagine your child gets sick, it's take you so long to pick your child up. Or if there is a school emergency - which I hope neither happens but I'd be more comfortable traveling quickly and not 40 minutes. Plus that'll be a drag on you to have to go 40 minutes there and back everyday

@shaynas Oh it is a new opening place? That is good to hear its a newly constructed place then right? I would feel at ease if I could reach my child (I don't have one) but within distances and not too fair from home. What does your husband think?
If there are people who can go and fetch your kid from the school that is a bit from away then it would not be a problem. If you thinking you are going to have difficulties droping/fetching him then better choose the school that is nearer

I know it may sound like silly as your son is still very little. But if I were you, I would bring your son to both of these two playschools to see which one he likes more. I know another playschool is far from your home, but as you said, they have pick up and drop facility and therefore it is OK.
I took him at both places while we were checking out, and he was equally excited at both the places. Because as a kid, he was just interested in the toys. The issue with traveling, is, it will take him 2 extra hours (other than the play school time) away from home.
