She has multiple other honors such as a Diploma in MI in Early Childhood Education from the Multiple Intelligences Institute, Singapore, a PGDEdM from NMIMS in Mumbai as well as a Bachelors of Education – YCMOU, Nasik. She began her career as a teacher in Shri Vile Parle Kelvani Mandal’s C.N.M school, one of the most renowned schools in Mumbai. As part of her role she learned and evolved many methodologies to teach young children and in due course realized that it’s more challenging to teach pre-school children, as they can’t speak well, read, write and are physically and emotionally completely dependent on care takers. Seeing this particular facet of education as her calling she decided that the best way to teach children is to learn from them and that’s when she got an insight into drafting an appropriate curriculum for children. Prior to taking up the reins at Leapbridge, Ms. Gosalia has worked with several established pre-Schools like Euro Kids and Podar Jumbo Kids. Ms. Gosalia has been an assistant editor at Creative Craft and Art Magazines for Pidilite Industries besides authoring and editing the pre-primary text books for Navneet Publications which were submitted to the Kenya Institute of Education in May 2010. During her 23 year tenure in pre-school education Ms. Gosalia has earned several accolades and continues to be a passionate advocate of developing new teaching methods while inspiring teachers to ignite the spark of learning in their students.
