I am an engineering graduate in Computer technology and I worked as a software developer When I was researching about the education system for a child I found Maria Montessori method. She says education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not accurate by a listening to words but by experiences in the environment itself.Then I decided to take primary training in IMTC and I realized that any unnecessary help gives to a child is a hindrance to development and it changes my perspective of the child then I stepped into Kalpavrikshalaya Montessori School and felt it to be spiritual and I am here to facilitate  the child’s development by nurturing the inner self.

I am an MCA graduate from Madurai Kamaraj University. Worked as a search engine analyst in an IT company and as a teacher for four in few schools at Madurai. According to me, education is a basic need of every humans’ life. Every child is unique in her/his own way. When we pay attention to their imaginations and  their creations we can help them in their development in a better way. Education is not only for gaining knowledge, it’s for life and its all about life.

We ,the teachers simply need to guide them to express their various skills. Such skillful children when they learn with Montessori materials we can visibly see the precision in their way of learning. Through which their creativity level increases spontaneously. I always feel proud and fortunate to work with children.

I am a BA, B.Ed. literature graduate from Bharathidasan University. Worked as a teacher for Kindergarten children in CBSE schools In my point of view education is the most powerful tool which you can use to change the world and for every child to start with early education should be  activity-based learning directed by their inner needs rather than theoretical approach and this would focus on overall child development towards the future.
