Welcome to Play & Learn

At Play & Learn, Jayanagar, we strive to create a nurturing and stimulating environment grounded in respect for children and the ways in which they learn.  With a strong belief in children’s innate curiosity and desire to challenge themselves, we are committed to promoting their sense of competence, creativity and awareness of others.  We believe that a supportive community of peers, parents and teachers is essential to children’s development as individuals and members of a group.

All children are exposed to numbers, letters, shapes, colours etc, but more importantly, they learn how to socialize — get along with other children, share, contribute to circle time. In addition to strengthening socialization skills — how to compromise, be respectful of others, and solve problem — we provide a place where your child can gain a sense of self, explore, play with her peers, and build confidence.

We help children find answers through exploration, experimentation, and conversation.

Your child will learn how to raise her hand, take turns, and share the teacher’s attention. What’s more, she’ll learn how to separate from Mommy.  All of this makes for an easier transition to formal schools.

We will help them learn letters and numbers, but to sit kids down and ‘teach’ them is the wrong way of doing it. They learn best through activities they find interesting — storytime, talking to teachers about stars and rainbows, playing with blocks, and so on. To help kids learn language and strengthen pre-reading skills, for instance, teachers might play rhyming games and let kids tell stories. For small children, school is all about having fun and acquiring social skills — not achieving academic milestones. Kids need to be imaginative and to socialize — that’s what fosters creative, well-rounded people. It’s not whether they can read by the age of 4 or multiply by 7.  An ideal curriculum? Parading around in dress-up clothes, building forts, and being read to.
