Welcome to Chili Pili

We are a group of motivated individuals who are passionate about bettering the lives of children of today through innovative educational practices. We find the schooling woefully inadequate to meet the needs of the coming generation. We aim to make education fun and about building intelligence, going beyond the conventional form of dumping information.


The Background

We are primarily a research and training company focusing on the field of early-stage education. Our team of experts has created and tested learning methodologies that enable a child to absorb concepts and learn faster. We offer online courses for parents on these methodologies which will help them teach their child the basics of language and maths through simple steps making the entire learning process immersive and fun for both parent and child.

We understand that learning is not about what you teach, or how much you teach but it is about how you teach. How you teach makes all the difference in the quality of learning of a child. How you teach is not just about standardized methodology like CBSE or ICSE, nor is it about non-conventional methods like Montessori or Waldorf or Multiple Intelligence or Learning Apps. How you teach – very simply is about the teacher and how they interact with the learner, engaging their mind and attention. We work on a continuous basis with our teachers, giving them the knowledge, tools, materials, and processes to help them become more capable teachers and better human beings, which in turn will help our children become better human beings and more capable individuals. Our principles are straightforward, the child learns holistically, develops all round into a better human being while being as involved and self-driven in the process as possible.

Our Vision:

To develop methodologies, teachers and material in early education, such that every person touched by our methods across the world gets the best all-round developmental improvement possible, ultimately flowering into adults fulfilling their highest potential.

Our Mission:

Kavitha Kirumakki


Kavitha is a founding member behind the Chili Pili. She has been driving force behind the Montessori @ Home concept - bringing the hands on montessori type materials to the children’s home. She is an electronics engineer from BIT. After her campus recruitment she ended in an MNC company ( Fidelity, Visa ) as well as Wipro CSC etc and the story continued giving her opportunities to work in different onsite as well as offshore assignments. She wanted to bring in the change in the education style to make it more practical and application based rather than rout learning which resulted in the creation of Chili Pili Makkala Koota – the Preschool where we encourage the organic way of learning where the child enjoys rather than being forced.
