It is surprising to note that grandfather aged 60, father aged 35, and son aged 12 are all having the same energy in the present times.

In our playgrounds children assemble around the teacher and freely talk. This creates an interesting bond amongst the teacher and the child. They talk about general things how was their day, what they liked during the day, what they like best at their home, sing songs, enact some characters and etc. It is an informal learning time which children enjoy.
