Our Team

“An ordinary teacher cannot be transformed into a Montessori teacher, but must be created anew, having rid herself of pedagogical prejudices. The first step is self-preparation of the imagination, for the Montessori teacher has to visualise a child who is not yet there, materially speaking, and must have faith in the child who will reveal himself through work. The different types of deviated children do not shake the faith of this teacher, who sees a different type of child in the spiritual field, and looks confidently for this self to show when attracted by work that interests. She waits for the children to show signs of concentration.” 

– Dr Maria Montessori

Anjum Husain

Founder

Anjum has been a Montessori guide and evangelist for 15 years and believes with all her heart that a Montessori education is key to solving the world’s pressing problems. She truly wishes that every child has access to high quality and affordable Montessori education. This venture is a step on a path which begins the journey for a child to change the world.

Anjum graduated from BITS, Pilani, India with a BE (Hons) in Electronics and Instrumentation. She worked in the semi-conductor industry for 6 years when she had a change of heart after reading a poem about teaching and children. She then discovered Montessori and has since dedicated herself to working with children using the Montessori philosophy and pedagogy. She completed her 3-6 training with MMI, Singapore. She has also completed her AMI 6-12 Diploma and AMI 12-18 Orientation Certificate. Anjum also completed the Diploma (Conversion) in Early Childhood Care and Education – Teaching (a Singapore preschool diploma) with the National Institute of Early Childhood Development (NIEC) and is currently pursuing her AMI 12-18 Diploma from Train Montessori.

 

Vidya Israni

Montessori and Lead guide

Vidya was introduced to the Montessori Method when her first child was born and she attended a workshop. She then did the Montessori Diploma for the 3-6 age-group from MMI in 2013. She has been working as a Montessori guide since then and has also completed her AMI 12-18 Orientation in 2022.

As a child, she experienced a traditional curriculum and found that to be impractical and boring. She is completely convinced that Montessori is a better way to educate children because in traditional school, the gap, in terms of what is actually required versus what there is, is poles apart. Montessori creates a stress-free learning environment for both children and teachers and brings in huge value in terms of its practical approach in helping a child acquire knowledge and skills. She also believes character is as integral to a child’s development as the regular curriculum. She is really passionate about creating a better world through young children and adolescents.
