In our classroom – at any level – the child experiences an organized environment comprising a variety of tangible activities, which in many cases are self-correcting. The activities steadily progresses from simple to complex, from concrete to abstract. Learning is reinforced internally through observation, comprehension, exploration and feelings of success. Hands-on, self-directed learning, character development, and peaceful conflict resolution are central to our curriculum. The child’s environment is carefully prepared with multi-sensory materials to engage their minds and hands. This we call as purposeful activity that caters to their cognitive and creative abilities.
We have regular orientation sessions with parents to carry forward the learning at the home environment as well.
A well balanced body emanates a well-balanced mind. So we pay attention what the child eats and enforce healthy eating habits at school and we expect parents to extend the same environment at home.
To completely benefit from this system of education, we strongly suggest the child stays in a single institution until the end of course at the age of 6 as the complete growth of the child is monitored individually and the stimulus is provided accordingly.

Infants are born with a thirst for knowledge. It is the brain development at this early stage that results in how, and how well, one thinks and learns—both as children and as adults. The first years of a baby’s life, the brain is busy building its wiring system. Activity caused by stimulation, creates tiny electrical connections in the brain called synapses. The amount of stimulation the baby is exposed to directly influence how many synapses are formed. Consistency and repetition of providing the stimulating environment strengthens these connections and makes them permanent.
Babies raised in an environment rich in stimulation develop better brains. To create the best environment for your baby:
- Respect your baby’s intelligence.
- Pay attention to your baby.
- Create a stimulating environment.
How to achieve this:
- Provide an environment to improve social interaction, independent of small actions like toileting, eating, and self- expression.
- To have plenty of room for their play thus enabling them to develop their basic motor skills.

Children aged three to six years possess what Dr. Montessori called the "absorbent mind": a mind that has the unique ability to absorb all aspects of the environment without effort or fatigue. During this stage of development the children are sensorial explorers, constructing their intellect by absorbing every aspect of their environment, language and culture. In order to maximize this ability, a rich physical environment, and containing key developmental materials is provided, in which the child is free to undertake the task of self-construction.This stage is a beautiful stage in a child’s development.
