The importance of NATURE PLAY in Bangalore
* Bangalore is the second fastest-growing major metropolis in India and popularly known as the “Silicon Valley of India”. As a growing metropolitan city in a developing country, Bangalore confronts substantial pollution and other logistical and socio-economic problems. This rapid growth has made Bangalore a home to a large number of young parents and children
* The living environments for children in the city are inconsiderate and do not cater to serve their basic developmental needs. Play schools and Kindergartens are located in houses with constrained spaces. These house-converted-playschools do not offer natural and open outdoor environments
* Bangalore has become a city of shopping malls, traffic jams, frothing lakes and waterlogged roads. The high real estate prices have shrunk the open playgrounds and green spaces in the city resulting in deprived living environments for its future generation
* The importance of early childhood development and the vital role of natural surroundings are not being recognized in the current educational ‘market’ and hence a space like Red Soil Nature Play will become a foundation stone in the future of early childhood development in Bangalore, India
