It was a long awaited dream of Dr  Sister Lydia to have a Diploma in Pre – Primary Course under the College of Education which became a reality in 2005. Sr. Maria Premitha was the first Coordinator of this course. The Coordinator of Pre-Primary Education was also the Headmistress of the Preparatory School from 2007. The classes were first held at St. Ann’s College of Education, subsequently they were shifted to St. Ann’s Preparatory School. In 2015, June the same was shifted to St. Ann’s Pre-University College building and Sister Irene Noronha was the Coordinator.

In 2016, June the Management decided that the course be under St. Ann’s D.Ed. College. Hence Sister Maria Shubha was appointed as the Principal and Sister Maria Reethika as the Co-ordinator. A small wing of the D.Ed. College building was given to the PPTT students. It is a nine months’ course. Various classes are held besides Field trips, Exposure pogrammes, Picnic, and Cultural week to bring out the best in them. During the Cultural week various competitions are conducted. All the National and religious festivals are celebrated with a prayer service and a short programme.

To make the teacher trainees confident in their teaching, they are given opportunities to give 28 block teachings in 4 of our schools. Yogasana is introduced to maintain good health. At the end of the year the students are well equipped and are prepared to be full-fledged teachers of a Pre-Primary School which hold the future of the tiny tots!
