“Children must be taught how to think not what to think”

-Margaret Mead

Children Development Program


To meet the universal demand for extra ordinary leaders, we offer a curriculum based on the real world challenges faced by the students of today and leaders of tomorrow. Young students in today’s schools will be the next generation of leaders in the workplace, in our communities and in their families. At Philosopher’s Stone, we challenge assumptions and introduce children to unexpected ways of thinking. Here they will do more than prepare for evaluations and examinations. They will return to lead people, overcome challenges and make the most of every opportunity.


Young Leaders Program(YLP)

The single most strategic time for developing leaders of character and competence is between years of 7 – 14. The reason is that while cognitions are elevated at this age, character is still pliable because life experience is still limited. We emphasize on developing their natural leadership talent.

Every child can become a Leader!
Young Leaders Program(YLP) emphasizes a culture of student empowerment and helps unleash each child’s full potential. Each participant learns about the best practices to administer self, manage teams and handle challenges. Based on the latest research into leadership, this program introduces an innovative approach to motivating children and inspiring them to behave and lead with vision and confidence.

I just go for one class apart from school and that is Philosopher’s Stone. I completely love coming to this place as we learn while having a lot of fun. My confidence improved and I realized it when I made a solo performance on stage and participated and presented my thoughts and ideas for IIMUN 2016.

Philosopher’s Stone is an institute that nurtures and nourishes the young and raw minds under the expertise, guidance, training, love and concern of one of the most matured and patient mentors – Ms. Deepali Nair, somebody like whom I have never come across before. By the use of her motivating gestures and actions, she succeeds in bringing out the best potential of every child and makes a child to believe that he/ she is excellent at what he/ she has been doing or wants to do. Her gentleness gives every child the comfort of fearlessly expressing his / her thoughts. One thing that I can surely and confidently say here is that Ms .Deepali, with the kind of immense knowledge that she has, would bring about an evolution of many young leaders.
Thank you ma’am for being such a wonderful guide for my son. You truly are a blessing in disguise 🙂
Purvi Shah, Parent of YLP student.
My daughter had attended the Creative thinking & Public Speaking workshop with Philosopher’s Stone. One thing which was distinct was that she would be excited to go for her classes. The methods they use to train students is simple still unique. I would recommend their programs to all parents, purely because of their passion for grooming children to be future leaders.
