How has Teknol, with PREto3 app, aligned to address the evolving needs of the early learning space?
One of the biggest challenges within the space is primarily the lack of communication between the program providers and the parent. While there is an inherent need among parents to play an active role in their child’s early and crucial ‘developmental phase,’ parents are often not aware of the educational developments going on in the school such as the timetable or the curriculum; they are also not well-informed about the school calendar and day-to-day events. We believe that technology could help bridge this gap. There is a lot of paperwork involved in running a school or aftercare program, which when digitized will not only be a time-saver for administrators and teachers but will also enable them to spend quality time on the children—which is crucial given their age brackets. Our primary focus is on solving the problems of early learning sector, providing technology solutions, be it management, communication, collaboration, or increasing the administrative efficiency of early learning centers. Teknol’s PREto3 automates these processes to help schools achieve an optimum level of operations. Moreover, our apps can be rolled out on to any country given they can be readily translated into any language.
How quickly can clients go up and running with PREto3? What are some of the visibility parameters and controls that they can leverage?
The onboarding process of the PREto3 app is very simple, all that the school needs to do is visit PREto3.com and register, after which, we have templates that enable them to submit data in a preformatted manner.

Parents know their child’s activities in the class through easy access to class calendar, time table, attendance notifications, and activity updates. This, in effect, enables parents to better engage with their children when they get home. Furthermore, PREto3 takes away the hefty load on teachers to manually connect and send student performance reports to parents.PREto3 automates the process and even supports multiple language outputs. Furthermore, it comes with assessment tools, learning materials and necessary digital support.
Please throw some more light on to your novel ‘experimental schools’ initiatives.
Technology solution is just one aspect of Teknol; we provide educational services as well to families. We also develop content and curriculum to support preschools. The experimental schools that we run— Laurel Play Gardens—the curriculum is based on a blended philosophy centered on the progressive development of the child, which is designed to evolve with the growth of the child. Every child today learns at a different pace—they are not cookie cutters—so why should the curriculum have to be so?
