Kavitha is a mother of 2 beautiful kids and wife to an extremely supportive and encouraging husband. She has completed  Bachelors in Commerce, Diploma in Computer Management and Masters in Human Resource Management and Development from the Mumbai University.

She is also the HR director at Honeycomb Engineering Pvt Ltd and this institution has been functioning successfully since 2013.

Head Over Heels was started with a passion to bring about education and childcare in the way that children would like to learn and enjoy. She had approached a few franchisees however she was not convinced of their methods of teaching children as they were no different from the way she learned during her school times. She felt she wanted to make the learning experience enjoyable where the teacher and child make a bond and learn hand in hand. The syllabus of the school and the training for the staff was entirely crafted by her. She knew very well that she was the only non branded institution where we set up our school and was well aware of the challenges she would face however she knew this would work as it was entirely favoring the children. They took sincere efforts in making parents understand that kids should not be forced to write however when they learned o identify and correlate to letters and number then tend to read faster than write. Once parents experienced this enriching learning process they have always been happy to send their kids to our school and daycare.

Head Over Heels is an ideal environment for children to learn, create and express in their own unique way. Our curriculum allows children to explore, research and learn by themselves under the guidance of child-friendly and warm teachers. They allow each child to learn from their surroundings that inspires not just the child but also the people around him/her.

Education will never cease to exist. Education is the one field that should be researched maximum as the evolution in education should reach widespread however that is not the case. Each educational institution can make their own effort to bring about improvement in the teaching methodologies. Educational institutions are here to stay.

Her team of teachers and caretakers have been with us since the time of inception. She was sure that itself speaks volumes about our bonding and interest in work. They are a team who is self-motivated and always ready to explore with the children they have around. They are always open to feedback from each other, children or the parents and are always willing to make the required improvements that will better each child’s learning experience.

She comes from a quality improvement background so constantly working towards improvement of any process is in her. Whether she is in a start-up or in an existing organization, the one thing that motivates me the most is process improvement. As long as she has her motivation with her. She would be happy anywhere.

She measures success on the basis of her happiness and satisfaction with her work. She measures my institution’s success on the basis of happy and satisfied clients.

Head Over Heels is in the field of education and childcare. They cater to children in the age group of 5 months to 12 years.

The most exciting part of Head Over Heels is happy and expressive children.They are planning to expand into elementary schooling.

As of now, they do not have any threats. The goal of every parent is to make their child the best. Her vision is to help parents understand that children will do well if we give them sufficient freedom to express their thoughts and as parents respect and channelize their thoughts. For this, it will be necessary for her to educate parents first that academics and knowledge are 2 different things and they need make our children knowledgeable first. Once kids are taught the way they like to learn and they can express themselves freely, they will automatically become sensible and responsible individuals.
