5.Games

Many people today are better equipped than ever before to deal with life’s challenges and difficulties. We live longer, enjoy more leisure time, and have access to the world’s knowledge at the touch of a button.

But children are spending less time playing physically, mixing with different generations, creating imaginary games, and interacting with parents. Many are becoming socially isolated because their leisure time is spent in front of a computer or television. They are losing the ability to empathize, to communicate and to read emotional language. Here at Leens Nestling we introduce games that were a common part of the older generations. When the Tablets and -iphones were absent the imagination was full on and it gave rise to hundreds of games involving the neighborhood kids. Games such as Oranges & lemon, Ice & water, catch the thief, musical chairs, ludo, carom,etc are a daily part of a child’s life at Leens Nestling. These games help the children develop their social skills, physical development, problem solving skills and also fills their childhood with love, laughter and millions of memories. The games are women into the curriculum in such a way so as to make learning more fun.
