We pride ourselves on our highly qualified Educational Leaders at Neev. They are a team of professionally-certified early childhood education specialists, dedicated to providing children with the best start in life through loving care and learning development.

  • Mentor- Serving as a mentor for new teachers is a prime role for leaders.

All journeys start with hope, aspiration, excitement and that butterflies in the stomach feeling of doing new things, reaching new places, meeting many new people and building relationships.

Our journey of Neev is now at a helm where we are walking along with many people who share the passion, vision and drive to impact early education. It's a dream not of one but for many to come along in this journey where the fruits of labour will be there for generations, long after the ones who believed in the dream and tread the path to its reality.

Neev took the cudgels in 2004 to create a space in early years that was of a quality, that was not available in Bangalore. 13 years later Neev is still evolving, that it must continue to do, yet a very mature organisation that has its own unique mark in early years space. From 35 children and 18 teachers to more than 500 children and 100 teachers it's not only grown in number but also in stature.

 

At the core of it is the child who is capable, curious, competent. Neev is a place for children to build and enhance their capabilities in all areas. We strive to nurture in them all abilities that will allow them to flourish in all environments with confidence and independence and be caring, compassionate and happy individuals.

"Life isn't about finding yourself Life is about creating yourself" - George Bernard Shaw

And so building the skills, attitudes, dispositions one needs to do this is what education is about. It is what we aspire to do everyday for every child. We are aware of the research, in the last couple of decades, that has happened in the area of brain development in the early years, that goes a long way into defining adult personalities. We take this responsibility very seriously and constantly endeavour to train ourselves to do the best. Our core values of Grit, Honour, Grace are our true north and guide us in what we do and how we do it for our children and for each other.

As our children go out into the world as adults 10-15 years hence, they will be in jobs that don't exist now. So the following saying sums it.

"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." Malcolm X
