“What you learn with pleasure, remains with you forever”
This is something I strongly believe in, and only further reaffirms my commitment towards ensuring a learning environment that is activity based and is joyful to the learner.
I have always felt that children should be viewed as having a natural quest for learning as long as they are provided with an appropriately supportive environment.
When I chanced upon Dr Maria Montessori’s method of education, I naturally gravitated towards it., This method supports independent learning, and challenges the traditional/conventional method. It furthered my belief that children loved to learn and work, given their own individual space and pace.
I strongly believe that every child must have the right to a Montessori education, especially in their early years, regardless of one’s background or economic status. I trust in the power of education to empower the educator, as much as the student, and using the teaching profession as a means to help create women leaders.
The desire to make a difference, and provide and promote a joyous learning space for students, led to the birth of Sprouts Montessori House of Children! Like how a seed germinates into a plant, I wanted our children to always sprout at their own pace, yet be very firm and strong in their roots. Therefore, the name “Sprouts” seemed a natural choice.
Over the last 18 years, we have grown from merely 4 to more than 300 children, gradually adding new environments across 4 premises, right from Toddler, Primary, Lower & Upper Elementary to the Erdkinder/Early Adolescents, moving on to Grade 10!
This incredible journey will be etched in my memory forever. There has been an organic growth at every stage, thereby standing true to the meaning of its name – Sprouts!
The school will continue to push boundaries to provide the experience of a lifetime to all the children, the educators, the support staff and parents too; where every day is a new day, with new things to learn and getting the best out of it all!
This is that place where I am me, at my best, with my children, and my team!
On this note, I welcome you to Sprouts and look forward, to having you be part of this beautiful journey of growth and learning!
