Thank you for the wonderful workshop and Tea Party. My days are going much smoother and calmer with Dea after the workshop. Am truly enjoying her childhood with better understanding of what is her need and How to do things with her.
DEA's grandparents are very happy to meet you and your magic worked on grandparents also just like it works with children. They were convinced about not watching TV in front of Dea, about gifts, about spending more time together, about eating food, stories and much more.....
I am not a very expressive person or a good writer so not sending feedback mails on regular basis.
The intention of this mail is to say Thank you from bottom of my heart and to inform that things working out now and it's all because of you.
Dear Dr Tejal Mehta,
Words can't express the appreciation and respect, Raj and myself have for you.
Thank you for bringing to our notice a lot that we were not aware of, stemming from us being overindulgent parents
What you noticed only proves the personal care and attention to details Viaan Raj receives, and how good you are at what you do
Raj and I appreciate how you have taught us to be better parents (not that we were bad before :)) ,but your expertise in child psychology has bettered us
We are sure your words will stay in our hearts and will in turn be the bedrock of good values in the upbringing of our child
It is so reassuring to know always that Viaan Raj is in great hands
Thank you to all the teachers and didis of Kookaburra
With heartfelt gratitude,
Raj & Shilpa
Dear Tejal Mam,
Trust you are doing great! I'd like to first thank you for conducting the wonderful summer camp which was exciting and equally enriching for our kids. Ranvir had a great time and look forward to many such camps at Kookaburra. Infact he has learnt so much from the summer camp as well and I see a great improvement in his speaking skills. It was a great mix of classes ranging from Helen-O-Grady to music, dance, gym and cooking. We could have not asked a better way to spend the summery afternoons.
Once again, I would like to thank you for your continuous guidance throughout our journey in raising the little ones.
Dear Ms Tejal,
I wanted to tell you Alexandra won her 1st dance contest at the Bombay local heald on Saturday at Khar gym. She was outstanding! She and Valseska danced to Dynamite and did their choreographed routine from annual day we didn't even know they knew it!!! Both girls did very well.
It was really really emotional for Daykin and myself as 2yrs ago in May when Alexandra had her hip surgery we weren't even sure she'd walk properly and so to see her brimming with confidence on stage (it was a spur of the moment entry ) made us very proud and we have you to thank!
Your care giving and unconditional love of our children continues to inspire our faith and trust in you and the rest of your staff.
Kalpaja & Apurva Kamdar
Hridan and we have found the best friend, philosopher & guide in Ms Tejal and her phenomenal Kookaburra Team of Teachers and Didis.
A BIG THANK YOU to you Ms Tejal!
A BIG THANK YOU to all the Teachers
A BIG THANK YOU to all the Didis
Thank you for helping us grow, bond and be good parents to Hridan!
Thank you for teaching us that there are no ‘perfect’ parents - there are only parents who are good and ever evolving
To the Kookaburra Team
This is the fourth annual concert that I’ve witnessed so was sure to expect something special but this has left me speechless!
When my two angels Nirmaan and Sharanyaa actually did a catwalk dressed in such beautiful outfits, like a proud parent we were also surprised and spellbound
From the concept to the clothes to the backdrop, the selection of songs and the confidence of the children everything was perfect.
I am sure a lot of planning and efforts must have gone in from all at school and we really appreciate it. The kids too were all taken well care of
With each passing year the concert has gotten bigger and better and am sure that the next year also will be even better
Thank you all at Kookaburra for giving us not just a concert but an unforgettable experience. Looking forward to the next year. Well done and keep it up!
Dear Ms Tejal,
KOOKABURRA - The bestest thing happening to my son, me and my family. I feel very lucky and blessed that I choose this beautiful institution for my son -who is blossoming everyday into a lovely, fine human being full of love and compassion.
A big thanks to the founder Dr. TEJAL MEHTA who holds a master degree in neuroscience, has studied bio technology and is a certified brain trainer - for not only taking our child under the umbrella of her love, care , affection and guidance but we parents too by constantly guiding , helping/supporting us in our parenting roles. She has not only taught us parenting skills but even how to be a good parent......she is helping us everyday to understand, bond and connect with our child.
KOOKABURRA - "THE MAGIC OF LOVE " is infact my child's first home.....(away from his home)where he has learned to walk, run, talk , dance, sing, express himself, eat solid foods, social skills and everything else which every mother wishes and strives to give her child.
Thank you so much mam TEJAL MEHTA and the entire kookaburra family for your endless love, care and support for our children and their families - and thanks for teaching them values of life as compared to what we have been teaching them for ages' manners'. Any words are less to express how we feel with you and our gratitude for you .........thanks once again for teaching our kids and awakening the geniuses in them with " The Universal language of Love". Our journey with Kookaburra and family if the most memorable, treasurable and the best gift to our son - the safest and most secured place for my child - "KOOKABURRA".
Dear Ms Tejal,
It's a privilege for me to write a review for the most trusted & caring school from my point of view in regards to my child, To begin with, the Principal Mrs. Tejal Maa'm the sheer founder of the school has put her heart to understand every child's needs & accordingly works towards the child in taking utmost care of his/her needs much above any other school would even consider that, in fact in my child's case she ruled out certain minor concerns that even the best of doctors were unable to understand & we as parents were able to implement & sought out the problem immediately, thanks to her concern & intelligence. Talking about the school right from discipline, hygiene, management, teaching & most important the security for the children is at utmost level & again personally taken care about by Maa'm herself, another important aspect is the use of LIVE SKILLS in their teaching which helps the child actually understand what they are learning & enhances their mental & physical skills, which we are personally seeing the changes in our child, in conclusion I would just like to say that after we as parents anyone else who is there for our child is KOOKABURRA....
Dear Ms Tejal,
Kookaburra learning centre- undoubtedly the best playschool. Its the best gift that we as parents can give our child at foundation level.
I have seen my daughter Manya bloom with Kookaburras magic of love.
One thing is for sure Mrs.TEJAL MEHTA not only deeply cares about our childs development but about their HEALTH too.
I would love to share my experience- my daughter manya presently studing in kookaburra,as an infant was on bottle feed..my husband and me were struggling to get her off bottle feed and then Mrs Tejal Mehta revealed her simple secret which worked wonders for us in just no time. Not only did she help us to get our daughter off bottle feed but also shared her home remedies when manya was suffering from severe cold and cough which too worked wonders. Our daughter's major milestones have been accomplished with the guidance and support of Mrs.Tejal Mehta and the entire kookaburra's helping and loving staff. As a parent I am very thankful to Mrs.Tejal Mehta for guiding me to be a better parent.
"A big thank you for all that you do."
Very lucky and privileged to be a part of kookaburra family.
Dear Ms Tejal,
It's the best preschool or you can say learning centre where you can send your child!
Mrs. Tejal Mehta is the best thing that can happen to your life especially for your child.
Just follow her and you will see beautiful results in no time!
It's the best place on the earth for any child.
In fact the best gift you can give your child in this important phase of their life where the actual foundation is formed to make them life long learners and wise citizens of the country.
Very supportive and loving teachers!
The best part Ms. Tejal knows each and every child by their names which is incredible!
I can write 100 books on why one should send their child to Kookaburra and it won't even stop with just 100!!!
It's a blessing to get in there.
All the best to Kookaburra!
Dear Ms Tejal,
I wanted my son's first play school like his own home where he feels safe n secure plus can learn things with a big smile. And the same thing I found in kookabura school . Tejal mehta has helped me in from choosing his first book boom.....zooom till the guidance in upbringing. Never met a straight forward and humble person like Tejal Mehta. Respect you always - Gopi Shah.
Dear Ms Tejal,
Kookaburra's Magic has worked so fast on my little girl.. The teachers are wonderful and care for the child.. We are well informed by them. Our children love going to school and within just a few months of going to school my daughter has learnt so many things.. Thank you kookaburra!!

DR TEJAL MEHTA who is a master in neuroscience and child psychology not only helps the child's brains to develop at a very early age but also spreads her "magic of love "which binds the child to fall in love with the school . . Don't be surprised if your child leaves your hand and runs inside the school or cries on the days not sent to school . .

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have Dr Tejal Mehta in our lives especially our children's lives . . . A second home away from home indeed . . Admissions are difficult and trust me no contacts work here . Everything is purely on merit only . Any other way is never going to work with a woman so ethical and dignified like Dr Tejal Mehta . .

Your child will know it all at a very early age and kindergarten and primary school becomes a cake walk for the child . . Social skills , physical attributes , food habits to emotional bonding everything is taken care of here...
Thank you so much Dr Tejal Mehta and the team for wanting the best for our children and for raising the bar of education system worldwide...
Dear Ms Tejal,
Kookaburra is just about giving your child one of his/her finest foundations in life. We are associated with the school since past 3 years and what its given to my son in terms of mental and social growth is something i will always be indebted to Mrs. Tejal U Mehta for. Being a parent is one thing but how to be a good parent is what i have learnt here. I hope you can spread your wings as far as you dream to.
Thankyou today and always.

No words can ever express as to how much ever I can thank her fr the contribution she has done fr my boys...
Dear Ms Tejal,
As an outsider that came into this school as a student from America for a year, I can definitely say that this is one of the best schools I have ever seen. The staff truly loves each and every child. I have worked in many different preschools but nothing has compared to the experience that I had the one year I spent at Kookaburra Learning Center. I was there from the beginning of the school year to the end and I was extremely impressed with how the teachers and Principal were with the kids and their families. Parents that were initially apprehensive because they were not sure of what to expect could not stop praising Mrs. Tejal by the end of the year. Mrs. Tejal Mehta and her staff give each student the love and attention that they need at this age. I have never seen a group of kids more well-behaved and willing to learn as I did in this school. One thing is for sure, Tejal Mehta cares deeply about children and their development. If you have a chance to put your child in one of her schools, I would not hesitate because she will give your children the advantage they need to be successful in their lives.
Thank you for all that Mrs. Tejal Mehta and her staff taught me throughout the year that I was there! ♥ I hope that one day I can help children the way Mrs. Tejal does.
Dear Ms Tejal,
Thank you for inviting us to be part of this amazing amazing learning journey. MINDFULNESS WORKSHOP
As you know me so well, I walked in thinking so what can I learn more. Well, when I left yesterday, honestly, l left feeling overwhelmed. Overwhelmed at the thought how little I knew, and how much it will help me, if I implement even half of what you taught us.
I am sure it will not only help me connect better with my children, but with everyone around me.
I always wanted to listen more, then talk. Maybe this was the intervention in my life needed to help me do this better.
Thank you so much.
It's time you started life coach sessions. Seriously.
All the best. God bless.
Richa & Niraj Ruparel
Dearest Tejal Miss,
I would like to start by telling you that the one on one has been completely life changing for both of us and we really are glad this happened and we got to meet and talk our heart out about our day to day activities with our child. Your counselling has become our bible for handling Kavirr and we really keep referring to it every single day and we learn so much more about Kavirr (Ruparel) by doing so. The entire process has been so wonderful and we get to connect with our child like never before and this is all happening because of you and we could not thank you enough for this ever.
We never want to stop learning as parents and no one better than you can guide us in doing so. We make mistakes, we apologies and get back to doing the right thing in no time and this turnaround process has been very good learning.
Thank you very much for all the counselling and we can safely say we are getting better at parenting after our on on one session with you.
Dear Tejal Mam,
Before we say Goodbye it was essential that we as Ruddra's parents express our heartfelt gratitude to you for all that you have done for Ruddra.
Where do we begin. There is so much to say that words will fall short to express our gratefulness. We wholeheartedly from the bottom of our hearts Thank you and the Kookaburra for everything. We shall lifelong remain indebted to you. We truly lucked out that Ruddra had a chance to be a part of Kookaburra and we everyday thank our stars for the same.
Kookaburra is a part of our being and will always remain so. Parting ways with Kookaburra is going to leave a huge void in not only Ruddra's life but ours too. Kookaburra is not just an institution but it's an emotion. A class apart is how we would want to define Kookaburra. Nothing could & ever will compare.
The immense love in its purest from that you & all the Teachers have for the children is what makes the key difference. Also the trust & love that the children have developed for the institution is beyond comprehension.
Kookaburra is a second home for our children & if you ask them probably their preferred one. The Teachers take care of our kids & love them like their own. The love that teachers has for our kids is clearly evident in all their interactions with them. All the kids absolutely adore them.
Most importantly this is the place where the emotional needs of a child are met & are addresses. And that is the reason why each child without any fear of judgment freely learns to express himself or herself. This is the single most important aspect that we feel is required for a child to grow up to be a secure individual.
The nurturing environment at Kookaburra is what is most precious. It is amazing how Ma'am you identify the needs of each child which obviously would have been missed out by a layman & sometimes even professionals; and provide counseling to the parents on the concerns. We as parents have benefitted in so many ways because of the same.
Kookaburra is Family for our children; with whom they dance, play, sing, eat & learn fearlessly. The sense of bonding that Ruddra has developed here with you, with the teachers, the didis & his friends; has given him an emotional security that will last him a lifetime. The sense of belonging that Ruddra or we have here at Kookaburra; I don't think we would ever have anywhere else.
The 3 years that Ruddra has spent at Kookaburra have worked wonders in turning him into a super confident child who is now capable of exploring his maximum potential. His emotional concerns have been overcome with all the efforts taken by You Ma'am & the Teachers. There has been a remarkable turnaround in him. You guided us in the correct direction in the first year itself.
When the children are with you we are at complete peace of mind & absolutely assured that they are in safe hands & could not be better taken care of.
Kookaburra has taught Values & life skills to our children that have been instilled right from a very young age. Once it is ingrained in their system right from the beginning it becomes Way of life for them. Key Vales such as compassion, gratitude, self regulation, kindness, care are seamlessly woven into them. Some People are amazed as to how our kids are so proficient at following instructions, their politeness, their self regulation & also their grasping power.
Academically our kids have learnt so much here. They are light years ahead of all their peers. The curriculum designed by you is definitely par excellence.
But most of all the ability instilled in our children to think is what is astounding. The logical thinking, lateral thinking, analytical thinking skills developed at such a young age truly is what will take them really far in life. And this is also coupled with the zest of curiosity that is encouraged & ingrained at Kookaburra.
The Math & Language skills developed by the children courtesy Kookaburra are way advanced for their age. At the open house when we went through the worksheets solved by Ruddra; we were amazed with the level of knowledge & analysis required for attempting the same. would like to mention here that our kids are capable of comfortably solving 1st grade worksheets all thanks to the knowledge & thinking skills acquired at Kookaburra.
Kookaburra has given the children an upper edge, not just for today but something that will last them forever. The benefit of the solid foundation received in their most crucial years in Kookaburra is definitely going to propel them into a successful future. Ma'am you have adequately readied them to be prepared for the challenges that they would now face in the big schools.
The Skills Ruddra has learnt here never cease to amaze us. He has sometimes left us open mouthed in surprise when he has shared with us snippets of information that he has learnt at Kookaburra. One such incident was when at 2 years of age he recited the Guru Mantra & the Gayatri mantra for us. Absolutely unforgettable.
Ma'am a special mention for all the delicious lunches that Ruddra has had at the school. We could try all that we want but never match up to the taste. Their favorite lunches will always remain the ones that they have enjoyed at Kookaburra. The Pav Bhaji, the Dhansak, the theplas, the daal; the list could go on.
The spectacular Kookaburra annual day each year is something that we will never get over. It has given us some of our most precious memories and some of our proudest moments. These will last us a lifetime. The Annual day coaching that our kids receive instills in them a Confidence to perform on the stage without appreciations. The public speaking skills they already have sets them apart & gives them a huge edge. All the hard work and efforts taken to shape up our kids is truly appreciated. The attention to detail in all aspects such as the theme, visuals, costume is incredible.
All the celebrations at the school be it festivals or commemorations of days; they have always been spectacular and extraordinary. Ruddra thoroughly enjoyed each of them & will sorely miss them going forward. The importance of each of these days has so beautifully been taught.
We are those few blessed set of parents who have had the privilege to benefit from your expertise. This is an unparalleled benefit that couldn't have been replicated anywhere else. You identify all the help that the child requires to make them the happiest kid & you guide us in the right direction.
You have helped us become better parents. The coaching & the guidance that you have imparted us with time to time; has been implemented by us and the results are for all to see. We are confident that your words of wisdom will have a lasting effect throughout the developmental years.
The books & games recommended by you over time Ma'am are such valuable and productive and productive resources. We diligently use the same and are grateful for your guidance. We on our own would have never been able to discover the treasure trove of such effective development games & books.
The Hygiene levels maintained at the school in all aspects is truly commendable and an attribute that has always been very reassuring.
Kookaburra has been a melting pot of Culmination of all the right elements that our kids needed to empower them with all the skills & aptitude required to deal with the future challenges & emerge a winner. The School has also been the breeding ground for several lifelong relationships.
Ruddra's best childhood memories have been given to us by you. And you have given Ruddra the most solid foundation that we could ever hope for . We cherish all the milestones that Ruddra has achieved with you. Ruddra will always remain your child wherever he goes. All the future successes will be attributed to the rock solid grounding given by Kookaburra.
Goodbyes are always difficult. But this one Goodbye we don't think we will ever really recover from. The void will always remain no matter where Ruddra goes. Memories of Kookaburra will permanently remain etched in our Hearts.
We cannot express in words in words how much we will miss Kookaburra being a part of our daily life. It's heartbreaking to think that we would not be returning everyday to the warmth & security that epitomizes Kookaburra.
To conclude A big Thank You to you Ma'am, to All the Teachers, the Didis, the Cook, the Security Guards and everyone else who is a part of this awe-inspiring institution.
The birth of a child is a beautiful moment in every parent's life, adding so many facets to our lives and changing it for the better. Our dreams and desires undergo a complete metamorphosis to include that little one, who becomes the centre of our universe. As we begin to think of their well-being, we start desiring a whole load of things.
We desire a safe and secure environment for them to grow in, we desire a foundation encompassing good morals & values that can hold them in good stead as they foray ahead, we desire a good education, which not just moulds them well academically but also holistically into well rounded individuals, above all we desire them to be loved, cared and nurtured in the same manner as we do.
Kookaburra for us has been all of that & much more... A DREAM, A HOME & COMFORT ZONE where Agastya has been for the last 4 years - and it is going to be tough finding a replacement.
He has blossomed from a cocooned, protected baby into a caring & loving child, always ready to extend a helping hand. Kookaburra has been instrumental in building his curiosity about so many things, which is wonderful, as it has greatly helped boost his learning & thought process so much more. He has also become a lot more confident, independent and responsible with a mind of his own.
Agastya has always loved school and it is easy to see why. When LOVE is the medium of teaching, and when KINDNESS & CARE is showered in abundance, each child will naturally want to be in that environment. We have always seen him go & come out of school so happily, and that itself is reassuring of the VALUES Kookaburra stands for...
We couldn't have let these 5 years go by, without APPRECIATING & THANKING you all for the incredible amount of HARDWORK , sheer DEDICATION & PATIENCE you'll have exuberated.
We THANK - YOU TEJAL MISS and all your wonderful team of TEACHERS from the bottom of our hearts for always holding Agastya's hands & molding & shaping him at every step in the former and most crucial part of his growing years. Thank-you for all your love, care & nurturing. Thank you for patiently hearing us out at any given time and providing all those valuable inputs, which we will always treasure. Your understanding of each child's uniqueness, strengths & weaknesses is impeccable.
Lastly, thank you for all the AMAZING YEARS , which we will always CHERISH down memory lane. May you always continue to INSPIRE CHILDREN & ALL OF US with all the GREATNESS you possess.
We are going to MISSSSSSSSS our 'KOOKABURRA FAMILY' immensely, much beyond words can express!!!
Thank you for everything...
With Love, Gratitude & Warm Regards,
Shailee and Dhawal Kamdar.
