“The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.” Maria Montessori
“Almost few decades back the market was dominated by the grandmother-run-crèches or similar informal arrangements. Today, parents are looking for an extra edge; something which is scientifically designed, research-backed and outcome-oriented. This is where organized players like us come into play”
Who are we?
Milkyway Preschool is a dream project of Indian Association of Science and Application ( ASA ). IASA is a non-profit organisation which is quite well known for its women empowerment and skill enhancement programs. We have also worked with school children to enhance critical thinking and problem-solving capabilities. We realised that these techniques should be taught from early childhood for the holistic development of the child. This led us to dream of a preschool which did not just enable reading and writing readiness but allowed the children to explore their inherent capabilities.
How and why Milkyway preschool starts:
Being a mother of two and also a teacher, the founder (gold medallist in physics) knew how important it was to give the children a type of education which not only ensured good grades but also prepared them to take challenges in life. She wanted her children not to be just successful but also become responsible citizens. But she soon realized that the present education system is not giving sufficient opportunities to children to explore their capabilities. She started researching on early childhood education systems and policies. She started science clubs, communication and PD clubs and so on to help the children to enhance critical thinking and problem-solving capabilities.
Her team mate and life partner, Sanjib Adhikary was very supportive of all these projects. They formed a team with educators, psychologists and special educators who envisaged a child education program which was flexible enough to fit any type of child. Thus, Milkyway Preschool was established in 2015 in Kolkata. Milkyway Preschool will give you the vibes of loving as well as encouraging parents. We truly believe that early childhood experiences will be the stepping stone for building the personality of the child.
To spread this system of early childhood education far and wide so that maximum no. of children can benefit from it.
