    I am mother of Jagriti. From a long time I was thinking to write something for this wonderful school. This is last year of my daughter in this school, and more than her it will be tough for us to leave Munchkin’s ‘Model Town’ branch. I have never seen such a wonderful school, which gives home like environment, comfort and love to each and every student. Mam Vigyata Raikar is the best principal so far. She is trying her level best to give quality education to children and not only to children, she interacts with parents like us that how we can boost confidence of our kids and make them a good human being.

    Noella Franco Mam, Shaila Mam, Sneha Mam, Archana Mam, Priyanka Mam and all staff, we thank them all for always being their for our daughter. Words are not enough today to express our gratitude to them. They have always been their whenever we need their help. They have set standards so high, that it is now tough for us to find teachers like them.

    I just wish that Munchkin’s grows so high that parents like us has to not worry about our children after Senior kg.
