Mamta has a PhD in Botany and Diploma in International Montessori Early Years Teaching. She has also done the Montessori Baby and Toddler course from Kent and Sussex Montessori Centre.
Her true interest in teaching and empowering young children became clear when she took it upon herself to carry out her son’s Early Years education. She then founded her own nursery in Nepal with the goal of educating the children through fun and play by following each child’s interests and capabilities.
She is an enthusiastic and industrious Early Years Montessori teacher and has been teaching them for more than 22 years. She has worked as a Montessori Directress and later as a Manager in a Montessori nursery at Sevenoaks, leading the team under pressure and promoting the Montessori ethos throughout the setting.
She was formerly Assistant Lecturer of Botany (Master's level) at Tribhuvan University. She also joined the Science and Management College in Kathmandu, where she provided pastoral support to all members of staff and young students. She motivated students and staff by organizing trainings and extra-curricular activities. She also liaised with students’ parents to pursue each student’s academic goals. Her work won her the Young Scientist Award (2004) from Royal Nepalese Academy of Science as well as a Gold Award (2002) from the Nepalese Ministry of Education.
Her scientific background gives her a strong basis to develop science-based activities for young children to nurture their interest and understanding of the nature around them.
