“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.”
Mrs. Sunitha’s Montessori story started with the hunt for Infancy Education for her own baby, back in 1998, when she came across the book “The Absorbent Mind” by Maria Montessori. Intrigued by the insights provided into the mind of a child, a group of her friends and she began searching for training in the Montessori Method. Although difficult to find a legitimate source back in the day, they finally found a chapter of the Indian Montessori Centre in Malleswaram, and began their training there.
Armed with a master’s degree in sociology and a three year stint in mainstream education, she trained under Mrs Meenakshi Shivaramakrishnan – an ardent promotor of the Montessori Method in India with more than four decades of experience. She also underwent primary training from the Indian Institute for Montessori Studies while still at work in a Montessori school.
Mrs. Sunitha’s passion for education shines through her eighteen years of dedicated experience in the field. Her vision is to endow children with well-rounded and complete academic support in the formative years, while allowing them to recognize their own potential and talent.
