About Founder :
Mrs. Manjeera Chakraborty is attached to this education field for the last 20years. She worked in Mother's Pride, New Delhi, one of the most prestigious and reputed chain of schools in North India for 7 years. There her dedication and innovative way of dealing with children made her a member of research & development unit of the organization. She shifted her base to Kolkata in 2002 and joined 'Zee Education'. She was an integral part of launching 'KidZee' in Kolkata. She worked for ten years in St. Sebastian's School, Lake Gardens (ICSE & ISC) as an administrator. During this long journey of almost 20years she closely observed children's psychology, felt the importance of being trained as a teacher, learnt about the parent's expectation. All these experiences inspired her to open her own institution 'STEP AHEAD'--- through which she would provide wings to dreams of children and in turn will contribute towards the making of a healthy nation.
While dealing with the children and the process of imparting knowledge to them Mrs. Manjeera Chakraborty has felt the utmost necessity of a trained teacher in the educational environment as child’s first role model is his/her ‘Teacher’.
