“We recognise that choosing a school is a big decision. We invite you to visit us and learn more about how a Waldorf education at Uday can benefit your child.”

Choosing a school and an education system for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make. The school puts immense emphasis on ensuring that parents are fully informed before making a choice to enroll in Uday. We engage parents in an orientation conversation, welcoming their questions and concerns, and invite parents to visit the campus.

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. Our aim is to partner with and support parents and families, in the noble task of educating their children. It is of utmost importance to us that parents understand the what, why and how of what we do before enrolling their child with us. We encourage parents to come to Uday with an openness desiring to be an active participant of their child’s education, and a contributing member of our community.

What Will Be The Timings For My Child?

Different levels have different timings and schedule. You will be informed about your child’s
schedule in the monthly newsletter, which will be emailed to you on your registered email id. You
can register two email ids with the school. (Usually these are the mother’s and the father’s email
ids.) Broadly, children under 2 years are in school for 2 hours, 2-3 years old for 3 hours, 3 to 4 year
old for 3.5 hours, 4 to 6 year old for 4.5 hours. However when your child first joins we take it slow
and on the first few days the child is in the school for just half an hour. We gradually increase the
time as per the child’s comfort level. On an average the child is settled and enjoying full school days
within a week of coming regularly to school, although it may take longer for some while other may
adjust sooner.

Can I Stay With The Child In The School Till He/She Settles Down?

We are committed to making the transition to school smooth for the child. However, we do not recommend that the mother/ father/caretaker stays back in school to accompany the child. With experience we have learned that it takes longer for a child accompanied by a parent or caretaker to settle in the school. For the first few days you are advised to be on standby close to the school and we will call you in case the child is going through a lot of anxiety. After the first few days, as the time extends, you are no longer required to be close to the school.
Here is what you can do to make the transition smoother before the child joins the school:

1. Share stories of school with the child to make him/her acquainted with the concept.
You can talk about things he/she can expect in school such as new friends, toys,
loving teachers etc. You can also share stories from your school days and point out to them how older children in the house / the neighbourhood go to school.

2. Do let them know that Mummy and Papa cannot be in school with him/her and that school is a place only for children and that you trust the school teachers to take care of him/ her.

3. You can request the teacher for a visit to school with the child in the evening a few days before school starts for the child. This will help him/her get friendly with the physical environment of the school.

4. Don’t be anxious yourself. Be confident of your decision and trust the school with your child. Children can sense your anxiety and are likely to be anxious if you are so.

5. While you leave the child in school, a warm hug, a gentle look in the eye and a
pleasant good bye with a promise to come and pick up the child soon will help the child to trust you and the school. Keep the goodbye quick and brief. 

6. Ensure that the child has slept well and has eaten a good breakfast before school as an ongoing practice.

What Is The School Uniform/Dress Code?

The school does not have a uniform because we understand that each child is different. However, the dress code of the school is simple clothing in which the child is comfortable and free to play without fear dirtying or tearing it. Please avoid fancy dresses, very new clothes, cartoon character inspired dresses etc. as that can be a distraction for your child as well as for other children. Please refer to the school rules (will be shared with you as soon as you enroll the child) document for more specifics on this.
