Deepa Pal started Pumpkin House ten years ago on Sept. 1st 2003 because the cause of pre-primary and primary education lies the closest to her hearts. Deepa Pal , who is the director of Pumpkin is a visionary who sees great things ahead for education in this area. The layout, infrastructure and the colours used bear witness to the fact.
With a background in child psychology & child development, she understands the needs and interests of toddlers and this special knowledge helps her to bring her expertise to the ongoing process in the fields of curriculum research, program design & development & teacher training to create the best learning experience possible.
Not just that, she extends herself selflessly even further by contributing to an N.G.O. called ‘Bal Sahyog’ which looks after over 100 orphans and also ensures that their education is taken care of which is followed by technical training later.
