Once Upon a time…..

……. two parents were looking for an ideal school for their child in Bangalore. After a series of bad experiences and changing their child’s school twice, the mother Manjula decided that something needed to change in the education space for young children. She discovered that the Montessori system of education was working wonders for her child Dhruv. She quit her job and pursued a course in the Montessori Method of learning. She is now a qualified Montessori trained teacher. Manjula’s husband Manju in deeply inspired by his wife’s passion to provide value-based learning to young children. He quit his job of 10 years as a lecturer at Francis College to help Manjula fulfil her dream of creating a Montessori environment for young children. They left their life in Bangalore behind and moved to Mysore, because it reminded them of a childhood filled with innocence. They created ‘Once Upon a Seed’ where young children can find their way into the world of learning at their own pace.
