Unspoken voices of our little children

Today being a mother to a toddler and an early educator it had made us venture into another world . In the first few weeks of caring for a newborn, most new moms feel anxious, sad, frustrated, tired, and overwhelmed. Sometimes known as the “baby blues” these feelings get better within a few weeks. It’s life’s tiniest things that teach us big lessons. Hence we  are penning down our personal thoughts and experiences.

Unspoken voices of our early learners –

Nevertheless, we would like to conclude by stating that We ought to learn a lot from children.The never give up attitude, even if it takes hours to pick up a strand of noodle in a fork, unconditional love, fighting for silly things one minute, and the next forgiving others, sharing things without any second thoughts, even if it is removing and sharing a lollipop from their mouth.


About the Co-authors

Harshini Manohar, Montessori Educator

I am a Creative and enthusiastic Montessori teacher with over 12 years of experience teaching special needs, learning-different and general population students with a certificate from Indian Montessori Training Center (IMTC).

I find great joy in nurturing the growth and development of young children by both embracing and encouraging a child’s innate sense of wonder, enthusiasm and creativity. My own teaching philosophy is based on the belief that children learn and develop best when they are empowered as active agents in their own learning.

In my work with children, I am inspired to help them find their own passion and experience the world around them through their many senses. In every student, I strive to foster an appetite for connecting learning from the classroom to real world experiences.

Nikhat Shabbir, Montessori Educator

With a Bachelor’s degree in commerce and innate love for children, I like to follow my dreams. A passion to teach and a belief that children can grasp better through play based learning, I am always on the lookout for new ideas to design fun and enriched learning modules to keep the children engaged.

I am not the biggest fan of cold and winters yet the most chilled out person you will ever meet. With a liking towards embracing stress of everyday life and appreciating things around, I work towards building a child’s social emotional skills and ability to solve problems, coping stress and challenges. Life derived learning and experience has made me a better person.
