Scandinavian education in Bangalore


The world’s most progressive early childhood care and education system
The Papagoya approach to early childhood education is rooted in learning through the joy of play. We see childhood as a phase of life with an intrinsic value.

At Papagoya, we make room for the different perspectives and worlds of experience of our children. We believe that the care, upbringing, play and education that children experience at a young age shape their attitudes, values and confidence in themselves and in other people, and their motivation for learning later in life.
Papagoya Core Philosophy and Pedagogy
The safety, security and care of the child is our number one priority. We believe that when a child feels cared for and comfortable in their environment, they remain open to possibilities and new experiences. Through our 1:3 Adult to Child Ratio, we are able to provide the care, comfort and cuddles that a child needs through the day.

Meals




We are what we eat, and so we believe that healthy food can fill a child’s need for love and nourishment. At Papagoya, children eat a morning snack, lunch and an afternoon snack with us, everyday. Through these meals they are introduced to new tastes, colours and textures and learn to eat independently.
Our approach is rooted in play-based learning. We believe that a child explores the world and discovers themselves and their place in the world, through play. It is through play that children navigate their surroundings, test theories, investigate, negotiate, create and invent, learn to care for each other, and develop their own interests.

When children at Papagoya feel cared for and are comfortable being here, they play. And through play, we find learning opportunities with each child. We see learning as a dynamic and closely interwoven interaction between a child’s physical and mental circumstance, and the environment in which they grow up. As so our Learning Areas are not just academic in nature, but also ensure that the child is exposed to, and experiences the larger world around them.

Field Trips


A large part of a child’s understanding on his/her place in the world is being exposed to the world around them. Once the children are settled in to the Kindergarten, we take them on short field trips around the local community.
