The Ogalala System in Play

Ogalala System in Play invited me to a workshop-launch to introduce a system wherein play products or educational toys are grouped together to develop the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional skills of a child from birth to 12 years old. 

The workshop-launch was held at the Ogalala Playroom, Richwell Center, Timog Avenue Quezon City. Unfortunately I was unable to attend because my kids are sick and I had to take them to the doctor. 

As you all know, I have three kids which are 5, 7 and 12 years old and as all parents we want our children to be happy and fulfilled and Internationale Globale Marques Inc. (IGM), an affiliate of Richwell Phils. Group of Companies, recognizes that needs and the company also believes that PLAY & CREATIVITY enables kids to enjoy learning and love life. 
"We know that dads and moms today have very busy schedules and would not have time to read all the good developmental books in the market. Being a mom of 2, I also know that although kids have a multi-media world now, our kids always look forward to their times of bonding and connection with their parents. My husband and I try our best to maximize our bonding time with Meagan and Marcus with meaningful play time since they were babies." says Maye Yao Co Say, COO of IGM.

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 explorationIt 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 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." 

Often times, parents try to squeeze in so much information from many sources (sometimes  too complicated) but lack the practical application of what they pick up. 

The result sometimes is either a too-general approach to a child's learning or an overload of information which quickly exhaust the child. 

On the other hand, kids nowadays are growing up in a very multi-media world, exposed to many stimuli. At the heart of each child though, is a need to personally connect or to bond. 

Then we also know that play is life for children. So as Dr. Lovaas expressed, we need to adapt to this kind of life of children and make learning fun for them through a system in play. 

The Ogalala System in Play exactly addresses this needs. It has been developed to help identify important milestones and tools that will help support your child's development, while at the same time helping you bond with your child. 

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. 

How do we support our child's learning and development when they are home?

How do we address their natural need for play and exploration without compromise?  

That is where the Ogalala System in Play comes in, and they talk about it during the Ogalala Child Development Workshop. 

Fill out the form now and come find out how you can the most out of your time with your child through the Ogalala Child Development Workshops.

  1. aw! sayang ang layo..but thanks anyway for sharing this!

  2. nice pieces of learning materials, equipped with certain guidelines and appropriate for kid's age, too bad you were'nt able to attend....the schedules for workshop are all for infants and toddlers, my daughter is 11 years old...i think she'll end up with those crayola products....

  3. I have a niece who is 2 years old. I think it would be great if we enrol her. :) I like the way they wanted the children to learn. I'm a psychology graduate and I agree with them to use toys as bridge to learning. And the toys that they would be using are colorful yet child-safe. :) Thumbs up

  4. Find a company that handles every aspect of a woman's appearance, including make-up, hair, dress style and body language.
    In order to get a rich and spotless tan while keeping your skin smooth and glowing,
    it is necessary to use the best quality tanning products.
    Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells, which means that the tanner
    will dye the skin which is likely to last for a far longer period of time.

    Here is my blog how long does a spray tan last st tropez
