Based in Kathmandu, Mr. Nirmal Singh has been in the profession of education for the last 13 years. His teaching journey began while working for his uncle’s school which gave him the confidence to open his own preschool.
In his words - “ After being involved in this sector for so long, I thought, 'why can't I operate a preschool?"
Thus, leaving the comfort of Kathmandu, he decided to follow his true calling. He wanted to open a preschool with a progressive curriculum and a brand name of his choice. He knew that this will come with heavy investments but will be worth it. However, he was well aware that it cannot be achieved overnight. And the journey to opening a preschool began.
“I spent nearly 4 years searching for locations and talking to teams. Location is a must. I studied the number of schools around and found that no school is based on a progressive curriculum” - Mr Nirmal Singh, Dakshya International Preschool.
Opening a preschool came with its own share of challenges for Mr. Singh. Some of it can be summarised as under -
“The first thing that attracted me was the EYFS curriculum and the other majors were No Royalty. I thought this is the preschool that I would like to set up. That’s how I came across Teeny Beans.”- Mr Nirmal Singh, Dakshya International Preschool.
“As many other preschool service providers do not give us an opportunity to create our own brand, Teeny Beans does. Teeny Beans is a non franchise preschool solution that’s one reason behind its selection.” - Mr Nirmal Singh, Dakshya International Preschool.
Mr Singh was convinced that selecting a perfect preschool solution can make or break his dream of opening a progressive preschool with a brand name of his choice.
Thus, Dakshya International Preschool came into existence partnering with Teeny Beans.
It is now aiming to open multiple centres across Nepal in partnership with Teeny Beans. Plus, it also wants to add more classes concerning higher education to the existing setup.
Today, Dakshya International Preschool is one of the top preschools in the city with around 100 students.
