The new "Late Morning Montessori Toddler Programme" at Gulmohar Days

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your interest in the Montessori programme at Gulmohar Days. 

A number of you had written to us requesting for admission into our Montessori programme. We thank you for patiently waiting to hear from us regarding our admission availability in November. 

Since the number of requests for admission are far more than the spots that will be available by November 2013, we have decided to open a second late morning Montessori toddler programme from August 1st 2013. 

This programme , much like the morning programme, will have the same curriculum, methodology, teachers and will be for the same duration as well. 

The timings for this toddler Montessori session will be 11.30 am to 1.30 pm. 

This session from August 1st will be open ONLY to children between the age group 2 to 3 years. If your child is below or above the age cut-off, you are requested to kindly send us an email so we may put you on the wait list.

Parents who are keen to be part of the Montessori Toddler Programme at Gulmohar Days are requested to write to us at the earliest and fix an appointment for a meeting. Please note admissions will be granted on a first come first serve basis.

Warm Regards

We are Moving!!

Dear Friends,

It is with great pride and joy that I share this news with you. Your continued support the past few years and the success of our programmes has helped us find a permanent home for Gulmohar Days, a place that we can now proudly call our own!

We have been working hard the past two months to ensure we are able to start the new academic year in June at our new premises. We are eager and thrilled to be able to welcome our Montessori, DayCare and Activity Centre children to our brand new centre from the start of term next month.

And most fortunately, our new premises is only a hop, skip and step away from our previous one.....we've only moved a few yards closer to joggers park and continue to remain on Lane no 13. Please do note our new address:
Gulmohar Days, Row house no 3, plot no 64, Clover Cascade, Lane no 13, kalyani Nagar, Pune -6

My heartfelt thanks to each and everyone of you for helping us reach this milestone. We could never have done it without your immense support and goodwill. Looking forward to creating some wonderful memories in our very own centre!
