With Apple Blossom Mr. Singh sees an opportunity to make a difference in the most crucial stage of a child’s developmental graph. All efforts to improve higher education ultimately hinge on the inputs provided in the early years where the role of specialist educators and caretakers is being recognized more than ever before. Apple Blossom is inspired by Mr. Singh’s vision and hope for a school that is able to provide an enabling environment for young learners in their earliest years.— Mr. N.K. Singh
