Ira spent a fairly large part of her toddler years at KLAY, Yemalur. She didn’t just go to school there, she built a separate family for herself. The love and care that she received at KLAY is irreplaceable – the staff is incredibly warm, knows each and every child really well, and provides a very nourishing environment to the kids who attend KLAY. I feel that the sound grounding Ira received at KLAY, has helped her connect with her teachers and instantly make friends at Kunskapsskolan. KLAY does not curb your traits and allows the child to grow into her own personality.
Apart from that, their way of teaching academics by using fun and interesting tools has a way higher recall value than anything else. Even though we had to pull her out mid-term due to some admission restrictions at her new school, the staff were extremely supportive of the transition and helped us with all the necessary documents without a single follow up. Not only that, even though Ira’s time at KLAY had ended, they extended the invite to their pre-scheduled PTM with us, and took us through her growth and development in that quarter. I doubt if any school provides that kind of an intimate interest in a child’s growth path.
Though Ira has met new friends and is settling in at her new school, KLAY will always be a beautiful warm memory in her heart – one she will never forget. It will always be her first school. No matter what time of the day we pass by the KLAY building, she always screams with excitement and says “Mumma, my KLAY school!” I think that itself is a great testimony to the safe, conducive, and nurturing environment KLAY provides its children. I will highly recommend KLAY to everyone!
With children out of school, physical distancing as the new norm, and children’s rights under threat, the new world order has “turned back the clock” on years of progress made on children’s well-being. However, it’s not all bad. As a human race, we’ve been built to adapt: we’ve seen a tipping point in technology-enabled education and the promise of a new education policy in our country.
