Hello, my name is Smitha Sri Hari, and am the co-founder & head of the Little Red Hen International Pre-school at Kothanur, Bangalore North. “Because, I am your Mother !” is my personal blog.
As a mother and a teacher, my primary objectives have always been seeking out new and disruptive methods that help children in my care excel in their language and cognitive learning, along with the tried-and-tested established pathways. My leaning has always been towards learning that promotes independence, curiosity, decision-making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving — the fundamental skills that help determine success in adult life.
It has always been a delightful learning experience for everyone included in the process. And I love being a part of it. And, at the end of the day, here is what I always take to bed, “Parenting is not a hobby, but a life-time investment.”
A Physics Major with a Post – graduate Diploma in Creative teaching, Smitha is trained in the Montessori Method and has an experience of 5 years of teaching in the primary section of various International Schools of Bangalore. Her exposure in multi-cultural backgrounds lend a unique blend of creativity and innovativeness to her approach and style of teaching. Smitha has worked with ESL students ( English as Second Language ) in her tenure and is adept in the delivery of language especially to this age group. Her passion for teaching the very young is reflected in the culture and the ethos of Little Red Hen Pre-School at Kothanur, co-founded and managed by her with an exceptional team of teachers who love what they do for the children.
