Nishant Garodia, MD, Garodia Education

Nishant Garodia is the Managing Director of Garodia Education. He has vast knowledge in the field of education and has been in this sector for over 16 years. Apart from spearheading a leading international school in India, he was also responsible for starting a school in Singapore. With an in-depth understanding of emerging technologies, Garodia Education institutes, under Nishant’s leadership, have employed methodologies that make learning a fast, easy and interesting process for the students. Known for his business acumen and entrepreneurship, Nishant is also credited for successfully setting-up Beehive, a chain of pre-schools’ on the franchisee model and P.G. Garodia Conservatoire, a unique music school.

In conversation with Dominic Rebello, Nishant says, he firmly believes that education is the cornerstone of development for us as individuals and as a society.

Tell us a few words about Garodia International Centre for Learning Mumbai?
Garodia International Centre of Learning Mumbai is a leading International school in Ghatkopar, Mumbai, which is a part of Garodia Education. Garodia Education has been actively nurturing students from kindergarten to primary. Apart from the excellent academics, the school is known for its cultural activities, sports, music, training tomorrow’s leaders etc.

The school believes in engaging minds and changing futures, thereby enabling all students to realize their potential and dreams in the fields of academics, art and play. At Garodia Education we provide value education that enables students to develop a sense of respect, compassion and equality towards others, and a sense of social responsibility.

Our guiding principles include a strong commitment to community service; learning, celebrating our diversity, developing respect for the environment alongside enabling students to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens of the future.

At Garodia education, we firmly believe that education is the cornerstone of development for us as individuals and as a society and want to impart the same to my students here at Garodia International Centre for Learning Mumbai.

How are you different from others?
At Garodia Education we believe in developing the leaders of the future. Here the students get exposure by engaging themselves in practical classes, thereby making it easier for the students to learn on the go. The curriculum is designed in such a manner that we impart life skills in addition to academics. Here with Cambridge board, unlike in other schools, students are not burdened with homework. This gives our students abundance of time to explore other activities and pursue subjects of interest.

We have exchange programs with other leading universities worldwide which provide unique learning experience and future opportunities:

PASCH Programme: PASCH Programme: mA special relationship with the GOETHE Institute which enables our students to attend special camps in Germany
Broward College, USA: A joint agreement which offers our graduates to study for 2 years in Mumbai and then 2 years in USA

We also have association with the National University of Singapore and Winchester College International Symposium

Additionally, we have adopted real time faculty driven learning rather than using tech aids based learning. This has really helped our kids to learn at their pace and develop good rapport with faculty to deep dive in to each subject.

There is diversity in our faculty, we have teachers from across the world and our Head of School is from UK and we have teachers from other countries to bring in best learning experiences to our students.

Our science labs are of international standard and our labs are imported from Germany and easy to manage and good to learn. This has brought in good change in how our students are learning science.

Our infrastructure of international standard and there was no compromise on any of the aspects ranging from class rooms, science labs, Lego Lab, ambience in the corridors, cleanliness, multi cuisine kitchen with Wi-Fi equipped cafeteria.

We have recently introduced the Lego® Education Innovation Studio for our students. All over the world, LEGO® Innovation Studios or LEGO® Labs help children engage in creative and active learning. The LEGO® Lab is the first to be set up in a school in India. As an extension of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) programme, the LEGO® Lab will be a part of the students’ engagement from Early Years through to High School.

Your vision for Garodia Education?
Our vision is to become one of the top 10 International School in Mumbai and to be an academic institute that encompasses cultural, social, aesthetic, historical and physical understanding that prepares students to become innovative, principled and insightful leaders to make the world a better place to live in.

Some of the challenges that you face?
Biggest challenge we face is to differentiate ourselves from the clutter of schools in International School and other curriculums in the country.

All International  Schools are not the same. The Board has given broad guidelines on what should be the curriculum and there is good amount of freedom to bring in best learning methods from across the world.

We as one of leading International  School in the city, we have revolutionised the new learning methods and we as an institute would continue to learn and our faculty gets trained at regular intervals.

We will continue to communicate our offerings to differentiate from the crowd and we are sure that we will be successful in bringing change in the way International Schools are perceived in India.

Where do you see yourself five years down the road?
We want to become a preferred International School in the country.  We want to expand our presence by opening more campuses to meet the demand.

We are targeting all parents who are looking for quality international standard education in India irrespective of their demographics.

We have our strong alumni, who have been placed in prestigious global universities like NYU, Warwick, Penn State etc. which would talk in itself about the quality education we have imparted at our School.

Our students would continue to participate in national and international activities and win accolades from across the world.
