Since its inception in 1977, Playpen has come a long way to transform into one of the leading English medium schools of Bangladesh. Playpen was founded by prominent educationalist Mrs. Zeba Khan. Although it saw a humble beginning as a kindergarten in 1997, by 1998, it had expanded classes to Primary Level and went on to transform into a High School. In 2003 Playpen sent its first candidate to sit for the O-Level examination. Commendably, the candidate attained “A” grades in all the seven subjects he took.
