What our teachers have to say

Sheen Chopra
Thank you for a great course. Great presentation style with lots of opportunities to ask questions and talk about real life examples which all made for a really enjoyable and informative course. This has more than met my expectations. A wonderfully practical course both personally and professionally and just the right mix of theory, demonstration and anecdotes.

Thank you to all of you for great informative course.
Lavanya Baugh
The course took me back to my school years and was a great feeling. With a mix of ppt and helpful videos shared by all the teachers, the sessions have helped me a lot in understanding the concepts. The way the concepts are explained topics makes it easy to connect easily with real-life scenarios thereby making it so much easier for all of us to understand. I thank everyone for a great course!
Saradha Gautam
I find the class very interesting. All the teachers are very good. I am able to understand the behavior of children better with every class including my son's behavior. Before these classes, I would easily get angry when my son wouldn't listen to me. But now I am starting to understand him better and get angry a lot less. Personally, this class gives me an opportunity to understand children better and improve my parenting skills. It also gives everyone a chance to express their views, ask questions, and help clear everyone's doubts throughout the class. Thank you so much for the opportunity for an enriching learning experience.
Shajila VM
While I prefer the face to face class, the recent lockdown left us with no choice. But I don't regret my decision at all. This has been my first experience of an online mode of learning and I am happy with the way the different trainers are able to explain concepts to us in their own unique way. I take this opportunity to wholeheartedly thank everyone for such a wonderful learning experience right to our doorsteps.
Christina Rajiv
“Teaching” has always been my passion. Having a teaching experience of 6 years there was always something that I had to learn, to experience and to inculcate in my profession. I had been teaching nursing students all these while. It was a great experience all together. It’s another great channel for me to learn more as we reach out to kids. I am thankful to God that I have found the right platform to upgrade my skills. KLAY is special to me. The training program is so interesting and informative and it gave me insight to all the core subjects. We have the best educators and trainers who make learning a wonderful experience......
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....
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.....
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....
