The single unique factor that the kalalayans value and cherish is the most intangible: the school atmosphere. The children have a feeling of security and a sense of belonging that makes them feel at home. The climate is such that they move about the school without fear, with confidence and ease and communicate with one another, even when within the hearing range of the teachers.

While appointments are not insisted upon for parents, it is preferred in order to ensure that they are free, as also to allow for time to do some ‘homework’ if necessary for the meeting.
