Klay Philosophy

Kids Learning And You. KLAY

KLAY was founded from deep rooted beliefs that:

• Parents shouldn’t have to experience guilt about choosing between work and staying at home.
• Children should have access to the best quality care and education even if both parents are working.
• Care and education must be delivered together for the best and most holistic development of the child, especially between the ages of 0-10. They cannot be mutually exclusive services.
• Exposing a young child to the right learning environment, plays a pivotal role in their development

Our mission is to ensure, that children experience happiness in their most formative years. In order to nurture a positive attitude in children, it is critical to:

• Support parents to create a stress free home or work environment
• Surround them with enthusiastic, loving adults who challenge them in creative ways
• Expose them to a variety of high quality learning tools
• Acknowledge and understand their opinions, their worldview and their interests
• Encourage them to develop their minds, their bodies and their personalities so they may reach their potential.
To this end, we’ve created a culture of expertise and excellence that puts the child at the center of all that we do.

KLAY’s award winning learning based day care and preparatory schooling program, has been carefully crafted keeping the safety, security, health and happiness of its children in mind. We work alongside parents to ensure that their children have the very best start in life. We offer a range of support services for parents which include flexible day care hours, knowledge based sessions on parenting, best practices in early years care and education and a whole lot more! Our teaching and learning philosophy is based on Multiple Intelligence, Inquiry Based Learning and Experiential learning.

The theory of Multiple Intelligence says that, intelligence can be differentiated by different styles or ways of learning. A child can learn the numbers through an activity with number cards and counters and another child can learn the same while climbing up and down the steps. A third child might learn through music, while a fourth through a building activity.

The Inquiry Based Learning approach acknowledges that young children love to ask questions. It’s one of the ways in which they make sense of the world and their place in it. Questions are also a powerful tool for educators to promote children’s thinking and learning. When children are able to pose questions and investigate the answers, they feel in charge of their own learning. Inquiry-based approaches to learning harness this spirit of investigation, creating an interesting, engaging and meaningful curriculum that uses children’s interests and questions as a starting point for effective learning.

Experiential Learning occurs when the child learns through experiences in and around her learning space. We believe that children learn best when we build on their individual strengths and intelligences. We provide an opportunity to nurture children’s curiosity and inquisitiveness, develop problem-solvers and decision-makers, and prepare children with the academic foundation to achieve success in school and in life. Children are not only taken on field trips to give real world exposure, but are also engaged in creating, making and building activities where they apply theoretical learning in practical ways.

Over the last 5 years, our high quality, child centric centres have produced successful school going children, who settle well and flourish in most of the top schools in the country.
