MPK was founded by Mrs Aruna Upadhyaya in 1979 at Sadar, Nagpur with a few children. It now spans Nagpur city with four branches with over 1500 children. The next step was the setting up of the Centre Point Group of Schools which today boasts of over 5000 children.
We have become a brand name in the field of premium education and it is a matter of prestige for a parent to educate their children in our group of schools.
At a time when Early Childhood Education was learning a few rhymes, numbers and the alphabet, we turned the structure upside down. . We taught “PHONICS”, said “NO” to cursive writing, rote learning and so-called”DISCIPLINE”. We believed then and today that discipline is intrinsic which can be nurtured through stories and in many other ways. Ample opportunities are provided for children to speak which makes an MPK child confident and bold. Our children are fearless and confident individuals who are not afraid to question the teachers.
Our successful journey has been exciting and we are looking forward to scaling new heights in the future.
The Learning program at Mother's Pet Kindergarten is designed to deliver age-appropriate skill development during the early years. We focus on the holistic development of every child with curricular and co-curricular activities for physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.
L S R W - forms the framework for our pedagogy - Listen, Speak, Read and finally Write. The curriculum delivery includes a mix of Language, Numeracy, Story Telling, and Montessori sessions. The Joy Quotient (JQ) is the common thread of our teaching pedagogy. Ample opportunities are provided to children for play and self-expression through art, Circle Time, music and movement and declamation events.
The early years (2-6) are critical to building skills, habits and values. Hence a learning program which is developmentally age-appropriate is necessary to lay a solid foundation to build skills, habits and inculcate values in the little ones.
We strongly believe children will learn the 3Rs (Reading, Writing & Arithmetic) only if they are given plenty of opportunities for Play and Self-expression through any medium be it drawing, play dough, clay, puppets, blocks – the list is endless. Here PLAY is LEARNING and LEARNING is PLAY .
A holistic approach to development in all the domains – physical, cognitive and social-emotional, has made us constantly strive to benchmark our practices to international standards. The striving continues and so does our mission to make children successful learners.
