6. Why does Tonkla School focus on playing ?

Tonkla School believes that playing is a way to explore, engage, and grow children or adult interest.  Fred Roger, an American educator, remarked, “Play is often talked about as if it as a relief from serious learning, but for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”


For young children, running around on the playground is crucial for physical development which builds the body for further cognitive development. This age is the time when children learn to interact with one another, thus developing a full range of actions from motor skills to social interaction.

Our classroom engages students' interests by being loaded with activities. Students at Tonkla School learn and grow, not because  they are told to, but because we make school fun.

" Play is our brain's favirite way of learning."
