- EuroKids also pays attention to ensuring that the entire preschool compound is secure, sanitized and joyful for the child.
- EuroKids also has an icon of its own named ‘Buddy’, which is a rabbit. He acts as a friend, guide and fun partner for little kids when they come to the EuroKids Preschool.
- Parents feel better when they know that their children have an emotional support and they will not feel abandoned in this situation, which happens basically because Buddy acts as a best friend for them.

Teaching Staff and Teaching Quality at EuroKids
EuroKids caters to more than 1000+ preschools and it has been operational for almost twenty years now. EuroKids follows the ‘Eunoia – Child First ideology’. In it, they believe that the innocent and pure mind of a child is the best origin of everything. Their curriculum is totally based on the whole merger of the mind, body and soul.
The school’s teaching quality depends on its curriculum and it includes many other things than just reading, writing and counting numbers. It also comprises songs, dance and various other ways to become skilled at, nurture and learn different concepts at their own pace.
More than 3,00,000 lakh students have been a part of EuroKids and this pedagogy and all of this cannot happen if the school does not have an able teaching staff and the quality of education offered is not first class.
The teaching staff at EuroKids is very friendly and loving. They talk to the children in a very patient and calm manner, and do not get agitated or troubled even if they repeat the same thing again to make the children understand it better.
All the teachers are well versed with the entire curriculum and teach the children through a mix jumble of different games, activities and dances. They create a safe environment for the child, so that he is not hesitant to come to school and when there doesn’t miss his home. By the hard work and efforts of the teachers, the child, kind of, starts to think of the school as his second home.
The entire staff (including teacher’s assistant, office and administrative staff) is very affectionate and kind towards the young kids. They help them as well as their kids in whatever capacity they can.
Infrastructure and Facilities Provided by Euro Kids
EuroKids provides hygienically clean and safe environment to its kids. The school authorities have put in place many security measures for the protection of young kids. They have also installed many CCTV cameras in the school compound. Regular fumigation and pest control is done of the campus.

EuroKids vs. Your Nearby Preschool, Which One Should You Go For?
Before admitting their child in any school, parents like to compare and see the different options. They wish to see which preschool is the best for their child. So, we compared the different preschools with Eurokids and found some variations, which have been discussed here.
The most basic one is the distance. As EuroKids has too many outlets so it tends to be more easily accessible to the parents as compared to the other preschools.
The next important point is the proper compound and playground. Eurokids has proper playground and big, airy and colourful classrooms for your little ones. The spacious ground and classrooms gives the kids ample space to run and play around. Many other preschools do not have empty space or big classrooms.
EuroKids has an audio-video room for entertaining the kids. Through it they show different engaging stories, rhymes and poems for the children to have fun, generally other preschools do not have any such facility.
EuroKids has a mascot Buddy, which acts as a friend to the children and help them gain confidence; other preschools do not have any such mascots.
Parents should see all these points and analyse them carefully. Only after proper introspection, should they decide which preschool to finalise for their little kids.
Should I Send My Child to Euro Kids?
A lot of parents are hesitant about sending their kids to a particular preschool. All of them look tempting from outside but sometimes what is visible to the eyes is far from the truth. Schools like EuroKids look very amazing and say that they will be very beneficial for the children.
But parents must carefully analyse the whole situation and preschool. They can also take the help of our article How to Choose the Best Preschool for Your Child in order to understand the how to select the best preschool.
Parents can also use the following points before deciding whether EuroKids or any other preschool is the best option for their child.
- Parents should think whether the preschool is providing the right chance for the child to grow in all aspects.
- All the parents should consider whether the preschool is preparing and grooming the child for kindergarten and formal school or not.
- The preschool that would be best for the child would be the one that enables and encourages his social and mental progress.
- Children should be encouraged to visit the preschool and decide for themselves, about which one appeals and excites them the most.
- Parents should see and analyse whether the games and activities being taught in the preschool will help the kids enhance their literacy and numeracy abilities.
If, based on the above points, the parents are convinced that the preschool (EuroKids or any other) offers the best facilities for their child, then they must enroll their child in it.
What is the Admission Process?
The admission process of EuroKids is very simple. It begins from January and is open till August. The preschool also has a provision for mid-term admission, which is between October and December. However, for the playschool, the admissions are open for the entire year.
For the admission, the parents need to do the following:
- Submit a photocopy of the child’s birth certificate
- Three recent photographs of the child
- Fill the admission form, which has some additional details that are required
Is there any Entrance Test for the Admission?
No entrance test (written or oral) is required for taking admission in the EuroKids School. The admissions are open most of the year. So, when the parents are able to submit the fees along with the relevant documents their child gets admitted in the school.
It is a quick and efficient procedure and does not require for any child to undergo any kind of test or procedure for admitting the student in the school.

The Euro Kids preschool claims to focus on encouraging and building life skills in a child. They, apparently, enhance the creativity of a child and work on his wholesome development. They try to improve the notions, behaviour and sentiments of a child.
But these are all the claims that they make. As a parent, it is your right as well as duty to ensure that all these are truly delivered before enrolling your child in the preschool because it acts as a foundation in the field of learning for the little child.
