Kids, Learning And You (KLAY) Prep Schools and Daycare is a chain of high-end preparatory schools catering to preschoolers. We provide world-class daycare facilities too. KLAY’s teaching and learning philosophy is based on Multiple Intelligences and experiential learning. Our school has adapted the theory of Multiple Intelligences into our curriculum to ensure that children learn concepts in the way best suited to their abilities.
KLAY understands that interpersonal intelligence goes beyond basic conversation and people skills. People with Interpersonal Intelligence, also known as “People Smart” learners, are good at understanding others’ emotions and learn best by helping others
KLAY’s way to identify People Smart children
- Like to – have many friends. Talk to people, join groups.
- Are good at – understanding people, leading others, organising, communicating.
- Learn best by – sharing, comparing, relating, cooperating.
KLAY utilises different learning centres and also ensures that more group and team activities are conducted to cater to the ‘people smart’ learners. Interpersonal learners enjoy collaborative work and thrive on building friendships and relationships. Thus, KLAY organises planned activities to facilitate learning for ‘people smart’ children in different ways:
Sand Play and Learning
Sand zone is the most inviting learning centre for any child, and sand play not only helps in developing fine and gross motor development but also promotes social skills. KLAY realizes that ‘People Smart’ children learn best when they work together, as they are good in sharing, compromising, and negotiating, and the Sand Zone acts as the best resource to encourage this.
Water Play and Learning
Splish Splash is always fun and every preschooler enjoys it both as an indoor and outdoor play. KLAY utilizes Water Zone as a medium to encourage the development of Interpersonal Intelligence in children as water play provides opportunities for extended learning and encourages the development of eye/hand coordination through pouring, stirring, squirting, etc. KLAY understands that water play builds social and emotional development, and hence is the best way to help ‘people smart’ children learn concepts.
Blocks Play and Learning
To build and to breakdown is not only fun for children, but also a great learning opportunity. KLAY utilises Block Zone to help ‘people smart’ children have fun and learn the curriculum too.
Role Play and Learning
Children learn by pretending to be someone or something, and its fun. KLAY’s role play activities provide an opportunity for learners to play in groups, negotiate roles, and cooperate with each other to recreate real life experiences—or just pretend to be animals and roar around.
Outdoor Play and Learning
Every child loves to play outdoors, but KLAY knows how to make outdoor play fun, while creating a learning opportunity out of it. Children can imitate animals crawling and moving all around, or fuzzy caterpillars or worms wiggling on the ground.
Indoor Group Activity and Learning
Apart from different zone activities, KLAY encourages group activities and teamwork to develop interpersonal skills in every child, be it working on a group collage or sorting beads to make a necklace.
To Sum Up
KLAY realizes that regardless of each child’s preferred mode of learning, all are gifted with all the nine intelligences. So, KLAY hones every child’s interpersonal intelligences by incorporating many activities into their curriculum.
