Oi is a playschool initiative of People Combine, a group that has pioneered and redefined the way education is perceived in India. Started in the year 2010 with just one school in Hyderabad, Oi has spread its wings to multiple cities winning the most prestigious title of being the “Fastest Growing Playschool Chain in India”*.
The choice of nursery or primary school is often the first big decision parents have to make concerning their child’s education. We fully understand how momentous this process can be, and how much time and though must be invested to ensure the right decision.
Oi is dedicated to fostering the social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and creative growth of the child. We follow an integrated learning curriculum that encourages exploration, play, and a lifelong love of learning. Oi provides an environment where children feel safe, secure, respected and recognized as individuals.
Our program is grounded on the developmental philosophies of Piaget, Erikson, and ygotsky, and their principles about the growth and development of children. In order to help facilitate self-directed learning, the schools are set up with a variety of materials and activities from which children can choose from.
The materials are stimulating, challenging and adaptable for children of varying developmental levels. When children play a significant role in choosing the experiences of their day, they explore what is meaningful to them as well as develop self-reliance and independence.
“Education is a gift for life”. We believe in creating the Global Leaders of tomorrow through our curriculum which looks at preparing the child for a life beyond school rather than examining how well the students have learnt the curriculum. Our teachers are the facilitators preparing the child for a lifelong learning process.

Age group – 6 to 18 month olds
Early childhood development is critically important. Along with experienced teachers and dedicated staff, at Oi, we help facilitate this key period of learning in our Infant Program. Our Baby Bloom curriculum is designed to develop and reinforce each infant’s individuality. Children participate in sensory-based learning experiences, while receiving positive, nurturing guidance from a qualified teacher. Teachers assess an infant’s development skills and then prescribe activities that are designed to enhance those skills. Our infants also receive extensive language exposure through games, songs, conversations and positive talk. Our well-suited adult-child ratio ensures children are provided with a secure and nurturing environment filled with love and trust.
Age group – 1.5 to 2.5 year olds
The toddler years are both terrific and trying! At Oi, we believe that early learning goes well beyond childhood. There’s an opportunity to do more than just educate right now; there’s an opportunity to educate children for life. The Toddler Program at Oi focuses on your child’s primary areas of development such as:
Fine Motor Skills: Toddlers’ fine motor skills, which include finger and hand movement, need to be encouraged in order for them to progress. At Oi, we offer a wide variety of activities for your child to develop his/her fine motor skills.
Gross Motor Skills: We focus on the development of all gross motor skills of toddlers such as walking, running and kicking. Gross motor abilities share connections with other physical abilities.
Emotional Skills: At Oi, we assist toddlers in exploring their emotions, ranging from joy to frustration. We help them gain skills such as patience, cooperation, sharing etc., at an early stage.
Social Skills: Children are taught important social skills such as imitating and responding to words and actions; Identifying and being able to name familiar items; engaging in conversations with the help of pictures; following simple directions and asking questions.
Communication Skills: Our teachers have a deep understanding of how toddlers communicate. At Oi, children are taught to put their wants and needs into words. This is done through singing, recitation of nursery rhymes, etc., so as to increase their vocabulary.
Cognitive Skills: Teachers at Oi encourage toddlers to investigate their environment in order to develop skills such as thinking, learning and knowledge accumulation. We strongly believe in forming trusting bonds between toddlers and their teachers. Small group sizes and a low adult-child ratio allow teachers to develop a deeper understanding of your child’s personality, likes, dislikes and developmental needs.
Age group – 2.5 to 3.5 year olds
Designed to inspire your toddler to create, move and interact, the Nursery curriculum at Oi is a planned programme which is separated into thematic units. Teachers help your child make discoveries by themselves.
At this age, children are driven to learn and actively come to terms with the way the world operates. Oi opens their eyes to a world of learning, sharing and exploring. Our teaching approach engages young minds with a blend of music, art, storytelling and movement. This approach uses an explosion of language that allows them to interact more verbally, giving us a clearer insight into their perceptions. The Nursery programme at Oi provides the materials required to stimulate curiosity, exploration and creativity coupled with experiences and interactions to support constructive learning.
PP1 & PP2
Age group: 3.5 to 5.5 year olds
At this age, children are just about getting ready_ for school. The Pre-Primary Program at Oi is designed to get them ready for school by teaching them letters words, math concepts, and valuable social skills. With special focus on math and science tasks, which are vital school readiness skills, children are introduced to patterns, classification and identification of shapes. Teachers provide many hands-on opportunities for children to explore colours, animals, plants, etc. In our centres, children also develop literary skills at an early age. They are engaged in meaningful reading and writing experiences, and they are encouraged to become readers and writers through a unique combination of child-initiated learning and teacher-guided instruction. Small group instructions, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and big group activities help children gain the right skills to hop, skip, and jump right into school.
