Ogalala Workshop

Neo and I are one of the lucky parent and child tandem who were invited to attend Ogalala’s Workshop last Saturday at SM Megamall.  We were quite a bit late, but nonetheless, I learned a lot of things and Neo enjoyed every bit of the workshop.

What is Ogalala?

Derived from the native American Indian term for an underwater irrigation system, Ogalala brings forth life for kids in the form of play, fashion, and exploration. It is a portfolio of global play and fashion brands.

It is a brand, therefore, that lets kids be kids, while assuring parents that they are “investing” in a brand that lets their children become warm, light-hearted, curious, and global.

The Ogalala System in Play

The Rationale – Children learn through play - that’s a fact. They also have different ways of learning. While there are general ways that kids learn, one method may not always apply to another child. And as O. Ivar Lovaas, a child development expert, said: “If they can’t learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn.”

This branded system groups together insights, activities, and tools appropriate for each child’s growth stage. IGM recognizes that there are 4 important development areas in a child’s growth: physical, intellectual, language, and social & emotional. While our children naturally develop, and with the help of schooling when they reach a certain age, each of them is still unique. Kids advance per growth stage in their own phase, and our job as parents is to make sure they grow up happy and fulfilled.

Now, back to the workshop.  Teacher Maia, the facilitator, told us that learning while playing can help develop our kids develop their intellect and fine motor skills.  Whats more, it also develop our kids social intelligence by playing and learning with other kids.

Neo, with the other kids, learning through playing using Ogalala’s products.  He enjoyed it so much.

There were a lot of activities that the kids (Neo with them) did using Ogalala’s products.  They did stacks, puzzles, colors and a lot more.

The participants.

Thank you, Ogalala for that fun learning activity that Neo had.  J
