Story Space – A Different School


Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world today." --Robert McKee


It is a space where communities and children learn all about life, cultures, and concepts as an integral part of learning.  Story Space is a Kathalaya learning centre - a school of learning whose vision is to "Make a positive social change in Society through Storytelling."


Kathalaya is the only institution offering LEARNING CENTRES – A DIFFERENT CLASSROOM CURRICULUM embedded on the Storytelling methodology in the world. Stories help children to rediscover their roots, culture, and heritage in a systematic and authentic manner. It subtly balances both the emotional quotient with academic intelligence to facilitate holistic learning. These stories are bound to open the doors of true knowledge for all.



The curriculum has been exclusively developed to suit the pedagogical levels of children between ages of 2-15. For each level the stories have been meticulously chosen and integrated with the basic concepts of learning in keeping with the NCERT curriculum and  integrated learning through stories.

The   curriculum is a compendium of stories where each story is conceived as a Story with a Story Plan, Concept map, Activities, Worksheets, Story Map, and a Read-Aloud Associated Story along with Books to Read aloud, Movies, Outing, and other Interesting facts. Each story has been designed to last for about 3-6 hours.

Each story also has an accompanying prop given as part of the STORY BOX. Each story has been conceived by a panel of experts in the field of both Academics and Arts.

The stories are part of the Story Lab experimented in activity centers and schools over the past 17 years.
