Q. What kind of curriculum do you follow?
A. Playway method of learning is a child centric method where the method of teaching is informal and
natural to suit the child’s interests. Our belief learning is best through play activities.
We make teaching more lively and interesting. We teach languages, mathematics, social studies etc through a series of activities like games, songs, free play, gardening, construction activities etc. The learning is not just limited to cognitive development, but also for the overall development of the child. A few methods and techniques included in this method are Role plays, Projects; Theme based learning, Field trips, Puppetry etc.
At our schools we also follow some level of formal learning as well, to ensure that the child is ready for the primary education.
Q. What are your unique differentiators?
A. Apart from the curriculum, our other unique differentiators are:
Environment
