Playgic – a list of activities and projects

By priyank

When we speak about unschooling, we talk about LIFE. Life has much more to offer than 5 subjects that children study in school

There are various projects which are organized by playgic time to time

The core concept of playgic life design is where children OWN the projects and do them in a playful manner. Just how traditionally it was done in tribes.

Adults are there to guide them. And these programs are supported and managed by parents. Parents are best teachers because they also care for children.

Benefit of being part of a parenting platform like playgic is that every parent becomes a resource person. Every parent brings their expertise, experience, resource which all children in the group can benefit from.

That’s why we don’t do a business model, because we can never match and hire the resources that are available with parents. We want to make the process automated and sustainable.
