Scandinavian Kindergarten In Bangalore
The Papagoya Kindergarten follows the Norwegian Curriculum, and offers a play-based learning program for children from ages 1 year to 6 years. We are a full-day Kindergarten that believes in a holistic learning experience for children, while also enabling working parents to pursue their ambitions and passions.
Play allows children to practice concentration, be creative, experience friendship, take responsibility & initiative, experience adversity & small losses, and be communicative. At Papagoya, we approach Early Childhood Education through Play-based Learning and create meaningful play experiences through the day for children.
Focus On Core Learning Areas
Using play as our medium, we are guided by 7 core learning areas that ensure that children are exposed to a holistic set of experiences and opportunities, that also confirms their academic readiness.
Communication, Language and Text
Body, Movement, Food and Health
Art, Culture and Creativity
Nature, Environment and Technology
Quantities, Spaces and Shapes
Ethics, Religion and Philosophy
Local Community and Society
Adult to Child Ratio
Our Adult to Child Ratio ranges from 1:4 for ages 1-3 years old to 1:7 for ages 3-6 years old where the adults working with the children are trained Educators who ensure that every child is met with the recognition and respect for who they are. We are able to engage every child in a way that matches their natural ability, interest and pace, and encouraging them to keep their individuality. This ratio also allows us to pick up on verbal and non-verbal cues and provide every child with the care, comfort, cuddles, meaningful play experiences and learning opportunities as they need.
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.

We are a full day Kindergarten that runs Monday to Friday, across 12 months of the year. Our Core Hours are from 10am to 4pm.
Every child experiences a different start to Kindergarten. And so we typically only admit 1-2 children per week, so that we can all stay focussed on the comfort and care that the child needs in transitioning to Kindergarten.
We require that one parent be available during their child’s 1st week at Kindergarten.
We follow a gradual method of transition across 5 days starting with a few hours on Day 1 and slowly building to a full day at Papagoya for the child.
