Help & FAQs

Are Skola toys purely educational?

For a young child, all work is play and all play is work. Children between the ages of 0 to 7 do not distinguish between work and play. Hence, everything they touch, feel and play with are educational in some form or the other. Skola believes that structured toys that meet specific learning objective go a long way in developing skills in the child that will stay with them for life which the ordinary toys do not achieve. Hence, the design of the toys is such that they have specific learning objective built into them and the activities we do with them. The toy is attractive and fun in its design elements still meeting the specific learning objectives they are meant to achieve.

Who designs these toys?

Skola toys is brought to you from a team that has been working in early childhood space for more than 25 years under Kido Enterprises. Kido has been manufacturing high quality Montessori materials & educational aids and has supplied to more than 10000 institutions across the globe. Kido also exports their toys to countries in North America, Europe, Middle East, Australia, South East Asia and more. Please visit www.kidoenterprises.com to know more about Kido.

The team has also designed the revolutionary Kreedo preschool curriculum used in more than 700 preschools across India. Please visit www.kreedology.com to know more about the Kreedo preschool solutions.
