Children thrive in Montessori Learning Environments.

We ARE AN AUTHENTIC MONTESSORI SCHOOL 

We draw inspiration from Dr. Montessori's groundbreaking educational movement, which began over a century ago and remains profoundly relevant today. This enduring significance has led to the widespread popularity of the Montessori method globally and its application across all age groups from birth to adolescence. Our school provides a nurturing environment for learning to children in their formative years (1.5-12), following the authentic Montessori approach - Carefully prepared aesthetic learning environments, mixed age children's community, passionate Montessorians as educators, uninterrupted work cycles for children in their daily routines and a strong focus on developing core life skills in an environment respectful to the needs of the child.

"An education capable of saving  humanity is no small undertaking; it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live."

- Dr. Maria Montessori

OUR STORY

The founder-parents (IIT alumni) sought an authentic Montessori environment for their daughter's early childhood education. Upon discovering widespread distortion of the Montessori method in many schools claiming to practice it in the surrounding area, they felt compelled to take action. Inspired by their quest for genuine Montessori education, they established a Montessori Children’s House of their own. Sketches, as it is named, is founded, fully managed, and operated by parents and passionate Montessori educators. Our goal is to provide authentic Montessori learning environments to the wider community. Committed to offering transformative education during the formative years of children's lives (1.5-12), we uphold the principles and practices of the Montessori approach.

Our Story

OUR Approach

In today's rapidly evolving world, it's essential that we provide children with learning experiences starting from their early years, preparing them to navigate a complex and fast-paced environment.

Over a century ago, Dr. Maria Montessori pioneered an educational method grounded in scientific principles that challenged traditional beliefs about children's capabilities. One of her most groundbreaking insights was that children possess a natural curiosity and eagerness to learn. Given the appropriate environment and materials, they are capable of deep concentration and self-directed learning from a very young age. Montessori viewed children not as unruly individuals requiring strict control, but as innate learners with reservoirs of self-discipline and tranquility that are activated by their curiosity.

Our authentic Montessori environments cater to children aged 1.5 to 12 years old, providing a purposeful integration of learning concepts with experiences designed to cultivate essential skills, character traits, mindsets, and competencies from an early age. This approach is crucial for success in today's rapidly changing world. Montessori education isn't just about preparing children for academic pursuits or school; it's an education that prepares them for life.

"Education should not limit itself to seeking new methods for a mostly arid transmission of knowledge; its aim must be to give the necessary aid to human development."

- Dr. Maria Montessori

What Parents Say

WHAT PARENTS SAY

My son has been enrolled with sketches Montessori since 2019 - effectively the entire pandemic period. I could not have asked for a better school for my son during this time. My son doesn’t get bored with the online classes at all since the teachers engage the kids with interesting and educational activities. There is individual attention in class, which I feel has really helped him learn so much. He is not even 5 years old but can read two to three letter Hindi and English words. He in fact loves the maths and science activities. Story time encourages children to recite stories as well rather than only listening. Overall, I am more than happy with Sketches and so thankful that we came here for our son.
