The school does not have transportation facility.
Overstaying in the school:
On request the child can be held back in the school beyond stipulated hours (till 06.00PM) with ‘Extra Care’ with food taken care of. (No overnight staying facility is available).Request must come from the parents through registered email address or mobile.Parents have to adhere to this due to security concern.
Food for Dayboarders:
No child is required to bring any food items or water from home. We serve variety tiffin, snacks, juices/ milk and many more and maintain a healthy change every day. Our in-house nutritionist and specialist cooks take care of the food requirement of all children during their stay in Lotus Kids.
The children who join for the whole day are served lunch with post lunch siesta. The children who join us after completion of their school elsewhere or only for afternoon session are provided with lunch and snacks during their stay with us.
We welcome ‘Mothers’ to share their expertise in preparing time-tested recipes for all the children in our kitchen. Special arrangement is made so that it is made in our kitchen under their supervision and guidance.
Every child is unique. Hence we have done away with uniform here. The children should put on dress as fancy and as beautiful as possible. At times we prescribe dress of a particular colour to be worn on a particular day to help us in conducting our theme-based activity.
Every room is fitted with CCTV camera and the entire premise of Lotus Kids is under surveillance 24×7.
First Aid facility is available along with trained staff to handle all eventualities. In case of any emergency, if any child faces health related issues while in Lotus Kids, the child will be shifted to Appolo Hospital, Bhubaneswar for treatment.
We also call parents to take the kid for personal care.
The School Building:
The School Building has been aesthetically planned with cheerful bright classrooms. Each area of the building is air-conditioned to maintain hygiene and provides a dust free comfort time to the children. Every classroom is a workshop in itself making the children more inquisitive preparing them to be a self-learner.
Self Exploration Zones:
We strive to acquaint the children with the outside world and bring them closer to nature. Our Activity Center is loaded with puzzles, toys, abacus and other fun-filled activities to cater to the child’s innovative and creative needs and enhance an opening to a whole new world of imagination.
- Simulated Learning Environment
- A well designed garden
24 high-resolution IP static code cameras have beenput at pivotal places covering the entire buildingarea both inside and outside for 24×7 live monitoringof school premise.
PARENTING SEMINARS are conducted from time to time to give the parents an insight into positive parenting. PARENT-TEACHER MEETINGS are a regular feature, which enable the parents to know about their child’s progress from time to time and give their valuable feed backs. We invite parents to share their skills with other children so that everyone is benefited in the process.
Plastic Free Zone
Lotus kids has done away with anything that is plastic from the premise of this center. None of the toys, games and materials used for learning is made from plastic. In fact so is the arrangement that the children will not come across or exposed to anything that is plastic during their entire stay in the campus.
Lotus Kids has installed Air purifier in each indoor hall to be used by children. By this we are able to ensure that the quality of air in the rooms for the duration the kids will be with us are of high quality. The UV tubes in the air purifier destroy the airborne bacteria and viruses from the air. The nano-photocatalytic filter in it decomposes the toxic gases and viruses from the air. The anion generator, which is part of this purifier, generates a great deal of negative ions to keep the air fresh always. (Note: The sea beaches and hill stations are full of negative ions and hence when you reach these spots you get energized and feel free from depression.)
RO ( Reverse Osmosis ) water purifier has been installed in the kitchen and also in each floor to provide the best drinking water to our kids. As of now that is the best water purification technology available for domestic use.
In developing countries four-fifths of all the illness are caused by water-borne diseases, with diarrhea being the leading cause of childhood sickness.
Infectious diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and protozoa are the most common and wide spread health risk associated with drinking water.
Fostering Independence and Good Eating Habits
The safety of all the children in our care is paramount in all situations.
During meal times children are encouraged to develop independence and good eating habits. They learn to eat by themselves and to become good eaters. Children are never force fed or made to eat food they do not wish to eat. The teachers use encouragement (e.g. try a little bite, you might like it) as well as positive language (i.e. we know you can do it). We never use technique of bribery (i.e. if you eat, I will give you a toy or fear
tactics, i.e. we will tell your mom that you didn’t eat) to make children eat. At the same time we ensure that no child remains without taking its share of food.
We want Lotus school to be known as Happiness Center rather than a Preschool. And in a happy environment learning becomes easy and automatic. Our primary goal at Lotus Kids is to prepare to create a foundation for all children for life-lasting happiness.
We believe that in a world, which is often stressful, challenging, and demanding, happiness seems to have become more and more elusive.
Living life in just a survival mode has become, unfortunately, the norm for many people. Lotus Kids believes that every individual is entitled to true happiness and all that it entails. The foundation to happiness is made during childhood only and has following attributes.
- Discovering passion in all areas of life
- Developing a positive outlook and becoming a life-long optimist
- Finding one’s authentic, higher self
- Living life with an attitude of gratitude
The base of the kids for all of the above components will be made here so that they lead a happy life ever after.
