The American School Director and renowned child psychologist Dr Jawahar Surisetti introduces many new concepts out of which Any Time School (ATS) is being introduced for the first time in the world.

Different parents have different time zones based on their work, which suit them. But they do not have the flexibility to send their children to School at a time of their convenience. The American School introduces the ATS concept under which the child could come to preschool anytime between 8 am to 11 am and leave school anytime between 12 noon to 3 pm.

This flexi time concept is for the convenience of parents who can decide which

four hours the child will attend. In case of need they could use the ETS or Extended Time Services at the school itself which will cater to after school activities, rest and exercise enabled services especially for working parents.

Speaking about the initiative, Dr. Surisetti said, "Preschoolers need to enjoy their school days while learning. This has tremendous future effects on understanding and critical thinking in their high school days. TAS focuses on these aspects." (ANI-NewsVoir)
