PHILOSOPHY

The Kinnari playschool is an extention of our home. "The House of Children" as we call it. Ours is the first step for children to develop their abilities. For this we provide a stimulating environment that allows the child the freedom to act spontaneously and are motivated to further their perception all the time. The special environment prepared in our house of children enhances the child's desire to learn. One of the fundamental point in our method of education is limiting the help of the adult so as not to harm the child and arrest her development.

From the very begining children must be encouraged to see colours, shapes, listen to interesting music, sounds, hear encouraging and soothing voices, move their limbs and bodies, feel different textures and surfaces, be aware of varied tastes and smells. For this our school provides all the necessary tools and aims at holistic development

Man is guilty of many errors. But our worst crime is ignoring the children. It is like neglecting the fountain of life. Many of the things an adult needs can wait. The child cannot. To him we cannot say tomorrow. HIS NAME IS TODAY.
