“Our job is to touch and conquer souls, and this is one prize which can bring us true compensation.” ~ Maria Montessori

It gives me immense joy and pleasure to be with children. The happiness they share is phenomenal. Their endless energy is infectious and I am blessed to be with them.

Learning is enjoyable and effortless for children, but as adults we try to laboriously push information into their minds. Therefore it is important to give them the education that suits their way of learning.

It is our sincere effort to uphold the vision and mission of the school. We constantly strive to create a positive and stimulating learning environment, helping children build their own mental strength. We provide them ample opportunities for work, play, joy and the freedom to explore. We develop children to fully realize their individual potentialities. We strive to create a stimulating environment to increase the learning experience of children.

The support and care given by our helping staff is truly appreciable. The love, interest and enthusiasm of our parents and guardians contribute towards children’s effortless and joyful learning.

I am highly indebted to Late Mrs .Meenakshi Balakrishnan, who was fondly called “Mother.”

I thank our Director, Mrs. Deepa Sridhar for her constant support and encouragement.

Our main intention is to build value in a NICE way.

  • N - Nurture inner strength,
  • I - Ignite interest,
  • C - Create a caring and loving environment,
  • E - Enjoy maximum freedom.
