Grandma care for kids

Thanks to the annonymous' comment on my previous post
I went on to help this person and started enquiring about kids care centres in Anna Nagar area and I blogged about a few in my previous post.
My search has been going on and found this.
Trained grandmothers take care of kids in Kanchana Paati creche located near Anna nagar Round tana. It is a creche, pre school and after school care, I heard. There are many activities listed for the kids of various age groups.

It functions at 45/85, W. Block (Behind) Witco, Anna Nagar.

They also offer day care services charging by the hour. The contact numbers are 98840 48038 / 98845 66426

I was looking for a day-care center for my sister's daughter who is coming back from the US. I checked out most of the places in Chennai. I found Kanchana Paati to be the best of all. They have two centres, one in Annanagar and another at Nungambakkam, just behind Taj Coramandel Hotel. The ambience is amazing. The staff are very pleasant and children are so happy. They also serve very healthy food for the children. I really liked the concept because it really feels like 'my grandma's place'. Both the centres are independent bunglows with enough play place for the children. I am a believer of 'vibrations' that a place emits. I felt very positive vibrations in the school. The attitude of the staff towards the children is very good. I am really taken-up by the sense of space in both the centres. My sister has decided to enroll her child there from January.

Almost a month ago, I had a chance to talk to my cousin brother who is the owner of this new facility and he said it hasn't been easy to come out with such a great idea. So with the hope of making the pleasant, comfort and easier child care experiences for working mothers now they have made their dreams come to reality.

Both my cousin brother and his wife are determined not to give up this beautiful concept though thier main focus is on a lot of valuable centralized resources.

I realized that these are the resources that are doable, but obviously need a bit of time for them to establish.

It is an overwhelming thing to see that this child care is named after "my periamma Mrs. Kanchana Ganapathy". She has enormous experience and exposure in raising children. Her name obviously stresses the importance of a central resource of providing "the grandma's care" that gives parents a chance to review all their parenting skills.

Ironically, the hardest people to help are the upper- and middle-class parents who are good at these skills but have minimal time to implement them.

Please do visit their site so all all the needy parents will know what kanachanapatti offers.

I have been to this place, I was pretty curious to see this place. I always had this idea in my mind a place where the kids can just be kids. Have loads of fun, tire themselves, have a good meal and sleep. Thats it. Grandmas place has just that. Its got love.

There is a new kid's play house in T. Nagar near Vani Mahal,called Hansel and Gretel. About 75% of the rooms are air-conditioned. There are games, toys, Puzzles and huge building blocks to kindle creativity, ball-pool, huge Play-structures with slides, swings, almost like an indoor play-park. There is a mini-library and a mini-theatre.The ambience is lovely and there is an open terrace area where we can hold kids parties. I visited this place yesterday and I think it will be an ideal getaway for kids, if you don't want to drag them along wherever you go in this sweltering summer heat.I did my shopping in peace while my kid had a great time!!Not expensive at all!Their phone no. is 28152549

hi....i read to all the blogs in the list of kanchana paati...but one thing i found very much poor on the curriculum, hygiene, n even food.......i felt the kids are kept like a herd and not a school...its over boosted on their quality and of course its tooo costly. No facility is dre...the staff are not well trained...i wouldnt suggest this place for the kids.....
