Life As A Pre-School Teacher


Teacher Testimonials


Swathi Jha

Admission of my child at KLAY and the high quality day care facility has not only resolved my doubts of sending him to school, but the opportunity to work in KLAY as a teacher has given me an identity. The education and quality day care that KLAY provides is highly appreciable. Now, I can give my all to my job along with the firm belief that my child’s growth and care is in good hands. Thanks to KLAY for making me a successful working mom!


Sia Jewani, Mumbai

It has been an honour to be a part of this course. The course highlights how teaching can be fun. Teaching truly is an art in itself. The course constantly emphasizes that is not just books that invoke intellect but requires equal contribution of play, music and art. What is best to know about a child's brain development is how as an environment we stimulate thinking/ multiple brain connections within a child in every moment of our interaction through verbal or non verbal actions.

I have learnt such beautiful concepts such as multiple intelligence, positive reinforcement, classical conditioning and much much more. Through the course you realize how each word said is a word for us but for them it is a world in itself. Every class conducted is an overview of our past and an insight into our children's future.

I got to make such lovely friends. It is amazing to see how we all come from such different educational backgrounds but how beautifully we have been weaved in this course as somewhere we all loved teaching. I look forward to every class every week to meet my lovely friends, my beautiful teacher, my classroom, my chair... reminiscing my childhood all over again. Look forward to much more fun coming our way!!!


Vijitha, Bangalore​

As a parent, I was intrigued by what early child education is all about looking at my child's development at Klay. On knowing there is a course which actually talks about it sparked my interest. It has been about eight weeks now and the journey so far has been amazing.

The way the course is structured makes it simple for a person like me to understand being from an engineering background and not having any prior knowledge on preschool education. The way the lectures are conducted ensures there is never a dull moment in the class.

During each assignment, researching has been a fruitful exercise not just for the assignment but also gave me wonderful ideas of spending quality fun time with my little one and has taught me how you need to keep researching not just as a teacher but also a parent. Parenting for me has always been listening to my instincts and going through this course gives me an additional insight to listen to my child better to cater her needs.


Chitra Singh, NCR

There are some things in life that cannot be learned from just reading a book or studying online. For example, imagine turning up for driving test and having never been behind the wheels of car. Good - teaching is no different and can only be developed through hands on learning.

It felt a bit strange but this is applicable on the first day as after long time I was entering the class room for IDPE but after a short while studies and learning became enjoyable because of the teaching methods used.​

Although overall session were engaging, interactive and communicative but the most encouraging and enriching experience is question and answer session and variety of media and other activities used to cater for learning styles and last but not the least teachers positive and supportive attitude.
