Rimjhim & Kanika Bahl Founders of The Courtyard The main purpose behind our centre is to support working mothers not only take care of their kids’s physical well-being but also their emotional, intellectual, creative and gross motor development. Hence all of us often refer to our centre as the ‘One stop shop’ for moms. My experience as a Montessorian along with the fact that both Kanika and I are mothers has been instrumental in understanding the mind-set of mothers and ensuring that we provide the best for their children. In our 6 years we have had the good fortune of being part of the upbringing of many young ones. We have seen them grow up into beautiful individuals with good social skills characterized by their ability to share, care and interact positively with children of varying ages and adults. Our philosophy always has been to ‘Follow the child’ and we are happy to see the positive results that it has yielded in our children which is reflected in the smiles on the mothers’ faces.

Taposhree Choudhury, Franchisee owner of Maple Bear, Salt Lake Kolkata says, “I had never worked when my kids were young. There were really no good daycare services earlier. I never wanted to leave them with the household support. When my child started his preschooling, I was really satisfied with the services & always felt that I can do a better job with kids. Finally when my kids grew up a little, I researched on different franchise of preschool and Maple Bear suited me the most. Their world class curriculum and education practices are unmatched. They promptly got in touch with us after an enquiry and later after a call with their MD, Hazel Siromoni, we decided to go ahead with Maple Bear in September 2015 and started our venture to support other working women.’
