Gone are the days when sending your child to school was sufficient preparation for her future, with perhaps a few music lessons and a sport thrown in. Education today is more than literacy – it prepares the child to face the world and be successful as an adult, both in the working world as well in a social environment. And education today is not constrained by school walls – it happens in the home and it happens in after-school classes as well.
The concept of holistic education that leads to the overall development of the child has found enough adherents that people now offer ‘enrichment classes’ to, literally, enrich the child by developing her life skills and helping her hone her intellect and talents. Such classes have become common in all the major metros across India and in many of the tier-2 cities as well.
These after-school classes enhance some kind of learning or knowledge in your child and are different from the hobby classes that you may send her to. So they do not encompass music, dance, sports or the arts. And they are very different from tuitions as well.
