We are introducing online admission process for the year 2020-2021, for Nursery to grade XII, to make the procedure stress free in this difficult times of pandemic.

We have suspended all in-person activities for sometime, including school tour for prospective parents.

Our admissions procedure is more than simply filling out forms, providing documents, and paying fees for here at Prerana we want to join and support parents and families in a partnership, the noble and collaborative task of educating their children.

If the admissions procedure is to be more than simply a business transaction, we must be clear and direct in our communication to create an atmosphere of open sharing, meaning that we need to get to know one another as human beings. That is the best way we can truly meet the developmental needs of every child and ensure their success.

It is for such reasons that we have a policy of not discussing fees over the telephone or via email. We want to meet you as a person before we begin any business conversation. We encourage you to visit the school in person and we will be happy to answer all of your questions.

We want parents to be fully informed and conscious of their choice to enroll in our school and come with open interest, desiring to be an active part of their child’s education, and a contributing member of our community. We engage parents in an orientation conversation, welcoming parental questions and concerns, and encourage parents to see our school firsthand. The expression, “It takes a village to raise a child” is genuine and truthful for it is very possible that your child will spend more waking hours in the week with their teachers and classmates than with you, making the choice of a school of the utmost importance.  No school can replace the loving warmth, attention, and moral guidance provided by parents and family but by working together in a spirit of mutual support, we can more fully meet the changing needs of every child entrusted into our care.

Dear Parents,

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy as you read this letter.  Thank you for your patience and understanding, as we have been adjusting, like you, to the drastic changes in life and work responsibilities during the last few weeks. We are extremely appreciative of our students, parents, teachers, staff, and administrators for their positivity, flexibility and resilience during these trying times. Although none of us have experienced a pandemic before, we all have to be together, understanding the situation we are in, and limiting our expectations during this challenging phase.

As we miss all of students, distance learning for Prerana Waldorf School is in full motion. We are concerned for our students’ health and well-being, as well as their families.

Our goal is to provide continuous educational opportunities and practice for students while schools are closed but also to eliminate as much stress as feasibly possible for students, parents, and teachers.
Our teachers and our staff are working long hours from home while dealing with their new, but temporary, normal.
While it is our responsibility to continue to help our children learn, we also want to compassionately take into consideration the variety of difficulties that our families and staff  are enduring during this time. We also ask for your patience and understanding as we travel this new territory, too.

Thank you for the photos, the appreciation, and the helpful feedback. Your positive responses are affirming the truly amazing work our faculty is doing to translate their teaching expertise into effective distance learning.  We appreciate you as well for doing your best to carve out space and time in your work and home life to support your children’s learning.

From 17th April 2020 for classes I to X and from 24th April 2020 for class XII scheduled summer vacation is starting, and when school resumes on 11th June for classes I to XII, and on 18th June for Nursery and Kindergarten, hopefully, life will get back to normal, eventually.
After this experience is over, our lives will include more appreciation of our blessings and our freedoms.  “This is not a time for us to panic. This is a time for us to come together.”
A huge debt of gratitude also goes to all of our doctors, nurses, hospital employees, first responders, the state Police and our state leaders for all they are doing to keep us safe and healthy.

Stay at home, stay safe!
