CASCADE MONTESSORI RURAL RESOURCE CENTRE in Narasingapuram
Narasingapuram is a village that is about 4 kms from a place called Elavur, well connected by sub-urban trains and buses. There are share autos from Elavur to this village where the primary occupation is farming. People speak Tamil here and most of them have been living in this village for generations. One of the highlights of this centre is the adult who heads it. Paranthaman has been working with us for the past 10 years and is well trained in 3 to 6 Montessori philosophy by veteran trainers in the field, through our Teachers Lab initiative. While he had been part of several of our Projects in the past, we wanted him to do something for his village children and community.
Narasingpuram centre emerged after our initial rented premises in Vallambedukuppam. We obtained land and constructed the centre for 2 to 6 year old children in the morning and functions as a full-fledged Montessori environment. We also have a section for 6 years and above children in the evening who come and use the resource centre very similar to our Jamunamarathur centre.
The difference this centre is making in the lives of children has reached in and around villages that people from Balwadis including Government officials and local community.
