How Stepping stone Montessori was born:
Stepping Stone Montessori is not just a school, it is an institution that reminds its founders of their very loved Uday! Uday was his parent’s pride and joy, Aparna’s younger brother and Nikhil’s brother-in-law. He was such an amazing part of the family that when tragedy hit, it shattered the very roots of the entire family. Uday was merely 25 years of age when he passed away. The family came together to help each other come out of this big loss, and amongst efforts to do so was laid the foundation for Stepping Stone Montessori School.
In his very short life, Uday had wonderful achievements already under his belt. He completed his Master’s with honors at the age of 22 and was already working alongside his father in their family textile business. Life was beautiful then!
When Uday passed away, the family decided to start a place where children could get an opportunity to learn and experience the most important things in life; Love, Respect, Care, Education, Growth….and hence came along “Stepping Stone Montessori”. It so happens that the name of our institution also comes inspired from the very first school that Uday ever attended when he was merely 2 years old. Everything about Stepping Stone Montessori comes directly from the heart and is filled with Love and Respect for something much greater than the worldly things. It is for the name of Uday to always be alive and loved!
Our effort each day is to make Stepping Stone Montessori a place where all children, teachers, parent, families want to be, Happy and Loved!
