Let 'em Play Till their Heart's Content!

“Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity.” - Kay Redfield Jamison

Even the UN has listed playing as the basic right of every child. Playing is a lens through which a child learns about their skills, abilities while interacting with the surrounding. Motivate your child to play in the dust and get tanned as he/she discovers real-life concepts that will become important milestones.

These experiences could be enjoyed at the best school in Vadodara.
