Back in 2008, an M.B.A. working in a MNC, I was unaware that the sabbatical taken then to embrace motherhood will be my final goodbye to the corporate world!

While I was raising my son I picked up a very important insight, ‘Play is the work of childhood and the highest form of education’

On observing mommies & children around I realised that while play was a part of a child’s routine it was often used by caregivers as a form of relaxation or break from learning. However as a mother I realised that PLAY was the best educational tool an adult could have!

This thought ignited a spark in me – to create a service which could bridge this gap of play & learning. It sounded vague to many but I believed in my dream.

I took up a formal course & worked in a daycare cum activity centre. The formal course & practical experience both reinforced my belief & in 2013 ‘The Kids Company’ was born.

Today I am a hands on mommy, a qualified E.C.C. Ed & a passionate entrepreneur.

Starting off with just 2 kids, I have reached out to hundreds of kids not only from the vicinity but a lot of NRI kids too.

Being featured in the leading dailes of Mumbai & bagging some Kids & Mothers choice awards with loads of positive parent testimones surely reassures my belief, ‘follow your passion and you will never fail!’
