Footprint Montessori – House of Children is an authentic Montessori school, following the pure Montessori way of learning.
Footprint Montessori was founded in 2009, offering programs for students aged from 1year, 6 months onwards to 6 years of age. Children join us as Toddlers in to our beautiful Nursery, also known as the “Infants Community”, which is specially designed keeping the Montessori principles in mind, where children can learn through play. This is similar to what is known as play-group, with a much advanced curriculum.
They then move to the Pre-Primary environment .By now, they are about 2 years and 6 months old. Once they are 4 years of age, they progress to the Lower Kindergarten (LKG) and then the Upper Kindergarten (UKG) at 5 years of age.
As an authentic Montessori school, our curriculum and programs are designed to build a strong foundation in academics, as well as social, emotional, physical and moral development. This approach encourages a child’s independence, self-motivation, and decision-making skills. Our school provides a program which is child centric.
The team of Montessori certified and experienced teachers, focus on individual progress and development of each child. They also receive continuing education in the form of regular workshops. Our teachers are also competent in art and music. We maintain the teacher to student ratio as required by the Montessori board.
Our classrooms are peaceful, happy places designed to meet the developmental needs of each child at every stage of development. They are designed to stimulate the child’s natural curiosity to explore the world around them. The classrooms are fully equipped with age-appropriate Montessori materials and our outdoor area is spacious with engaging play equipment. Children can engage in their own free play, or participate in other organized sporting activities.
Footprint Montessori adheres to the philosophy and method created by Dr. Maria Montessori through her observations and experiments with children from all backgrounds. She created a teaching method and scientifically designed educational tools that respond to the specific stages of development which is universal to all children. Using this method, we are able to provide a safe and stimulating environment, which through discovery and exploration, allows children to develop a lifetime of social, physical, emotional, and spiritual attitudes that lay a solid foundation for a socially responsible adulthood. The end result of such an education is an independent, self-confident, child with passion for learning.
Footprint Montessori's mission is to provide Montessori education in order to create a lasting impressions in your child’s mind which he/she will carry even in adulthood and further leave his/her footprints for others to follow.
We strive to nurture the development of each child in our community to the best to his or her potential to help them become independent, responsible and compassionate individuals who think critically and realize their role in the world.
