The pandemic changed our lives in ways that we could have never imagined. Overnight we went from social beings to people confined within the 4 walls of a house. Schools shut down and everyone started following physical distancing. Children had to now stay at home and play indoors avoiding going outdoor and meeting with their friends. Mumbai is one most effected cities of our country and as parents, we are all careful to ensure that our children stay safe and stay indoors.

Q. What is different between Learn@Home vs. KLAY@Home?
Learn@Home is a program with live, online interactive sessions in a classroom format. KLAY@Home was a series of live video sessions and activity worksheets to engage children during the summer months. The content was designed basis the previous year’s curriculum. These activities are available as a repository on our website for any-time access. `
Learn@Home, on the other hand, marks the beginning of the next academic year and will take into account structured learning outcomes and strategies to track the progress of these outcomes in children. It is a paid-for program on a subscription-based format.
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.
