''I am able to implement more neat work and pattern based exercises. After working for a while in Sendurai I am able to understand the philosophy more in detail. Children have also become more smart in physical and emotional level. They have developed natural love for work and learning. They have improved their writing skills. Language teaching through sand paper letters have made the children to learn and write easier in grade 1.I am conceived now. I am undergoing my whole pregnancy with real awareness in this system and environment.I wish to bring my child as early as possible.''
''I am much aware about this education after going to Sendurai.I am very much interested in Uni5 concepts.

I will make our center as a good learning center for Uni5 education''
''Poraiyar center looks neat and tidy. I am able to observe more Uni5 system of learning patterns. Teachers have changed their method after observing Sendurai center. They need a gook looking center with more furniture. This has to be planned by us. More materials for sound patterns, working rexin mats, EPL tools, essential books and animal models were purchased. Thier salary will be increased from June. Town school elder children must be given the awareness about very small children getting into their building.

This is learning meditation. The environment is very neat, calm and children have natural love to learn. The drawing skills are very good. They do not fight with each other. Grade 1 teacher is stress free and she is able to concentrate in teaching. More children are coming and parents are little bit aware about their children.
