About Montessori

Dr. Maria Montessori, the founder of the Montessori Method, was the first woman to practice medicine in Italy. She had a great fascination towards children. Her keen observation helped her to, in knowing their requirements and understanding the child. The Method of Dr. Montessori was first implemented in San Lorenzo, Rome and was named as ‘Casa-de-Bambini; means ‘House of Children’

Mixed Age Group

We believe in vertical age grouping, which creates an atmosphere where children learn to help and be helped by other children, since they interact consistently with children whose age and abilities are varied. Older children learn to be patient and tolerant, and serve as role models for the younger children. When an older child teaches a younger one, it reinforces previously learned concepts and is actually an aid in complete mastery of concepts. Younger children learn courtesy, manners, and conflict resolution by watching the older children in the environment.

Prepared Environment

Our environments are spacious and well ventilated and have a rich supply of learning materials for each area of the curriculum, neatly arranged on low, open shelves so that children can access them independently.
