Thereafter, the school will arrange a vegetarian lunch. If parents do not opt for school meals, they will be required to send appropriate vegetarian food in a tiffin along with the child in the morning. These will be consumed only in the dining hall along with others during the appropriate break.

School buses are available to pick up and drop off children. The routes and stops are designed to reduce the travel time and students are expected to be escorted to, and picked up from these stops as per the informed timings. Bus fees are charged separately, from those wishing to use the facility.

Policies

Parents of the admitted children are sent guidelines, which assist them and us in educating the child in our school. The policies and rules laid down in this prospectus and the Guidelines may change from time to time as the need arises and the management reserves the right to change / modify these at any time to better serve the needs of the children. We, however, welcome and are open to valuable suggestions from the parents and public.
There are many articles written by educationists, members of the public and others based on their experience with the prevailing system of education. At Progressive Education, we have provided since 1996 an alternative, which captures the spirit of many of these views as well as of our own experiences and that one reflected on our Facebook page.
