Perceptions are the depiction of personal experiences and significant to explore. The insights of children regarding school, teacher and education require a keen investigation to improve the teaching learning process for early aged children. The study aimed to explore the hidden concepts of pre-primary students and to find out the reasons behind their specific impression. A qualitative phenomenological inquiry was planned and semi structured interview protocol was used to collect data. Formal consent of parents and school administration was taken before recording interviews of individual children aged 4-7 who were purposefully selected. Thematic analysis was done to extract the meaning of the data and it was found that children have contrasting insights about school, teacher and education. The negative insights regarding school and teachers could affect the learning of the students and may discourage them to feel good at school. Therefore, it was suggested that insights of students should be unveiled and modified if found negative.
