Readiness Program

Educational program for students trained elsewhere to meet the standards to join the first standard (Primary school)

School readiness can be actively facilitated with a little forward planning to ensure that children regularly participate in activities that develops the appropriate skills required to help optimal learning when they start school. While many people think of academics (e.g. writing their name, counting to 10, knowing the colors) as the important school readiness skills, school readiness actually refers to a much broader range of skills like self care (independent toileting and opening lunch boxes), attention and concentration, physical skills, emotional regulation, language skills and play and social skills.

We firmly believe that education in human values form their core strength to face the real challenges of life.


Real education is that which promotes unity, equality and peaceful co-existence with fellow human beings…

Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba emphasized, ‘real education is that which promotes unity, equality and peaceful co-existence with fellow human beings. It flows from the heart and is termed as EDUCARE.

  • To help children realize their innate goodness.
  • To bring out the inherent values, of Truth, Right Action, Peace, Love and Non-Violence, in the children and to guide them to practice these values in their daily life.
  • To help teachers, parents and children to re-focus on these five basic positive values that underlies all aspects of a moral society.
  • To help young people to be in touch with their own feelings and nurture awareness of the qualities within themselves which form good character and behaviour.
  • To help children to explore concepts of right and wrong through the use of storytelling, role-play, songs, games and drama.
  • To achieve human excellence by cultivating the values through unity of thought, word and deed.

Our Team

Lil lighthouse preschool is the best play school in Tumkur. 

Our teachers and other staff are well trained and empathetic with the young minds. They are passionate and creative to instil the spirit of enquiry while understanding diversity. They are patient, energetic, flexible, well-organized, knowledgeable and mature enough to mingle with children and ignite their innate talents.

They implement a play-based learning approach in their classrooms, which means they are forced to wear many different and unique hats throughout the day.

One minute they are an expert storyteller during circle time with preschoolers, and in the next minute, they become conflict resolution managers, helping young learners to sort out their differences. Sometimes they are simply a playmate, while other times they help students engage in structured learning as part of the curriculum.
