Bengaluru: The Freethinking School starts ‘pay as you wish’ fee model

Bengaluru: The Freethinking School has paved the way for many legacy schools by offering a very noble “Freedom from Fees” offer.
The aim of the ‘Freedom from Fees’ offer gives parents the liberty to decide to pay as per their capacity. With any amount that any parent pays, the school will offer their full package until March, 2021.
This ‘pay as you wish’ offer is valid to anyone across the world who may want to join. The recently announced National Education Policy (NEP) says ages 3-8 are the foundational stage and it is important for rapid brain development and validates the need for learning based on play and active discovery that The Freethinking School leads in. In this context the “Freedom from Fees” initiative is even more relevant and important for young students.
Sandy Philip, Directress of The Freethinking school, said, “In harmony with this spirit of Freedom, the programme is offered absolutely free to frontline Asha workers, nurses and other COVID warriors for their service to one and all. It has been my dream to take Montessori to the masses. My vision was always to make quality education accessible, reachable and affordable and this helps me achieve that.”
“Montessori at Home” is a bespoke monthly subscription programme designed to cater to 2.5 to six-year olds’ diverse needs. It fosters development across domains.
This programme gives young children the freedom of choice from daily planners, which focuses on all the five Montessori areas of learning. They are, Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics and Cultural Extensions.
Additionally, Freethinking fun theme-based activities, which include virtual field trips, stories, dance, and much more are offered. All these activities are sent through pre-recorded videos to train parents on how to home-school their children. A downloadable kit is also sent so that children can work with their hands to use the Montessori materials with monthly assessments on the same.
