I was fortunate to be a part of the ECCE Course at Arya Vidya Mandir Institute of Education. It’s a very well designed ‘complete’ course which covers theory as well as the practical learning component. This course has helped me not only professionally, but also in my personal life through planning, time management and multi tasking. It is recognized in the US as well and this course is the reason for my successful career today. An enriching experience, a must do for everyone interested in teaching as a profession.

AVMIOE ECE has a special place in my heart. It was here that I learnt I could do things I never thought possible: making huge backdrops, props, script writing, time management, multi-tasking and many more. The best part of this learning experience was dealing with all emotions while pursuing the course: sometimes smiling, crying, feeling low not to forget broken bones but still waded through this lovely experience only because of the teachers, mentors and friends and colleagues support. Have made lifetime friendships and learnt to connect with other people on a level-deeper than schoolwork and submissions. I was a part of something much, much bigger than myself, and discovered that the resulting feelingof responsibility can be not a burden, but a joy”.

Polumohanti Jyotsna

ECE 2007-08

I am a qualified architect from JJ School of Architecture in Mumbai. I love being with children, and after my son was born, I found my calling in the field of children’s education.

To pursue this seriously, I enrolled for ECCE at AVM School, Juhu, in June 2007. I was back to school after a gap of almost 9 years. It was a very fulfilling experience for me. Our faculty, Ms. Manjula Warrier ma’am, Ms Zarina ma’am and Ms Jessie ma’am are wonderful teachers. I got in-depth knowledge from their innovative teaching methods and from the guest speakers who shared their varied learning experiences. We had hands on learning at the preschool each day. This according to me is the most important part of the training. The lesson plans, creative techniques, group lessons, submissions, puppet show…. and all was a well-rounded holistic approach to learning.

With the new found confidence, I started my own Playschool and Activity Center called ‘Early Concepts’ in 2009. It has been a very fulfilling experience for me. I take the children every year to the AVM puppet show to ensure that my bond with AVM stays strong.

I am ever grateful to my teachers and mentors at AVM ECCE for this life changing experience!
