The first thing that comes in our mind while educating our children is the Montessori Philosophy itself. It is a place where our children start early Education and learning. All facts show that Montessori school is always on the top and gives our young hearts the best foundation. We have a great team of passionate & enthusiastic people who bring Love and passion for Montessori Education.
We always focus on the goals to achieve and adopt all the best possible teachings and learning atmosphere. It is the basics and initial step of learning. Having a proper guideline and mentor helps in making a child a respectable and well-mannered citizen.
Taking the best decision for your child can bring inner satisfaction and peace. What is more important is to choose the best place after observing and communicating with our Educator at MMIS.
FOUNDER OF THE MONTESSORI METHOD OF EDUCATION:
Montessori Education was founded in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori. She was born in Italy on August 31st, 1870. At the age of 12, she and her family moved to Rome to give her better educational opportunities. At the age of 22, Maria began her medical degree. She became the first woman doctor in Italy in 1896. Dr. Montessori was appointed as an assistant doctor at the psychiatric clinic at the University of Rome. She observed that after children finished their meals, they would throw food on the floor and play with them. These children had no toys to manipulate. She believed the only path for these children towards intelligence was through their hands: ‘learning by doing.’ She thought in the ‘secret of childhood’ that all are born with potentials, and the adult should nurture the potential.
FOUNDER OF MARIA MONTESSORI INTERNATIONAL PRESCHOOL:
Mrs. Savisha Evans, inspired by the Montessori Methodology of Education, accepted her first job offer right after high school. She worked as an assistant in a Montessori preschool in Malaysia. She is completely inspired by the Montessori Method of teaching and Education. She has decided to adopt this Methodology to nourish the mind of the children.
She has dedicated her youth to Montessori Education. She has made progress slow but steady in her career path from being an assistant teacher to a Lead Teacher, Principal, Lecturer, Trainer, Consultant, Education director, and today a founder of her very own Montessori school.
Five years ago, she traveled to Hanoi, Vietnam as a consultant. She has been touring worldwide, Vietnam working with high and low-ranking organizations, to inspire and share Montessori Education’s best Methodology. In the last five years, she noticed that this is the most effective way to educate and nourish young minds and infants.
Maria Montessori International School is particularly built to educate young hearts to perceive the most caring, loving, and pure environment. A founder Savisha Evans also has a firm belief in having children very close to nature all the time. The most important thing is that it is standing up for children’s rights.
On December 1st, 2020, Maria Montessori International Preschool was established by a team of passionate people. She takes this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to the building of Maria Montessori International Preschool. It is the second home for the children that will not be complete if you are not here with us.
The Montessori preschool truly believes in “Education for Life. We believe that Education is not for today but for “Life.” We nurture young minds and hearts in lifelong learning.
Our mission to provide;
- A Montessori environment where children are given the rights to be children

DISCOVER YOUR CHILD’S TRUE POTENTIAL
Throughout history, Montessori students have been empowered to realize their full potential and have gone on to change the world forever, for every one of us—and the better. This transformative experience leads children to true self-discovery about themselves—and their future.
Our child-directed classrooms are fully harmonious between a loving environment and an educational environment. The special characteristics of our classrooms are well-equipped furniture and ongoing learning challenges in the school.
It makes our child curious and active to absorb and learn more things. We give our children the freedom to work continuously in our classroom with guidance by the directress only when needed. We believe that children should work independently as Maria Montessori said, “Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.”
Our directress is constantly working towards making classrooms the most engaging environment for our children. The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say,’ The children are now working as if I did not exist.’
In our Montessori school, we practice the mixed age group divided into two groups; 18months to 3 years and three years to 6 years old.
THE PREPARED ENVIRONMENT
Montessori’s idea of the prepared environment was that everything the child came in contact with would facilitate and maximize independent learning and exploration. This calm, well-ordered environment has a lot of movement and activity. Children are free to choose and work on activities at their own pace. Here, they experience a combination of freedom and self-discipline, as guided by the environment.
There are generally six aspects of our environment;
- Structure and Order
- Nature and Reality
- Social Environment
- Intellectual Environment
A SENSE OF COMMUNITY
One of the most important aspects of a Montessori classroom is its interactive, collaborative, and social nature. A Montessori classroom is inviting and inclusive, and so is our school.
You can bring Montessori home with you by fostering independence, coordination, order, and concentration in your child, through simple daily tasks, such as dressing, setting the table for meals, and cleaning up.
Engage your child regularly to ensure they know they are an important family member whose contributions to the home are welcomed. This goes a long way toward developing the whole child, as we work to help shape mindful citizens who are respectful of others and prepared for the future.
WHAT MAKES US AND AUTHENTIC MONTESSORI SCHOOL
In a school offering the authentic Montessori Method for early childhood education, you will find mixed-age classrooms to encourage collaboration and socialization; child-selected and self-guided learning experiences; teachers trained by a MACTE-accredited training program (Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education); and natural, authentic learning materials, including three-dimensional, textured objects for learning both math and language concepts.
THE MONTESSORI VS.TRADITIONAL METHOD
What makes the Montessori Method so unique? When you enter the calm, peaceful environment of a Montessori classroom, it may seem quite different from what you’ve come to expect from traditional educational settings. Here are a few differences you may notice.
The Prepared Environment
Montessori classrooms are prepared in advance based on observations of the students’ individual needs. They include student-centered lessons and activities. Traditional classrooms are based on teacher-centered lessons or activities.
Active vs. Passive
Montessori lessons are hands-on and active. Students discover information for themselves. Traditional school lessons are often orated to students who listen to passively, memorize, and take tests.
Give them time
In the Montessori classroom, children work on lessons as long as need be, and interruptions are avoided whenever possible. Arbitrary schedules mandate time limitations in traditional classrooms.
The Teachers’ Role
Montessori teachers act as guides and consultants to students on a one-on-one basis. They assist each child along his or her learning path. Traditionally, the pace and order of each lesson are predetermined. The teacher must deliver the same address, at the same rate, in the same order, for all students.
For the Love of Learning
Montessori curricula are intended to appeal to the child’s innate hunger for knowledge. Children learn to love learning. Traditional curricula focus on standardized test performance and grades. Children learn because it is mandatory.
Change is good
The Montessori Method was created by Maria Montessori and is based on a lifetime of study and observation about the way children learn. Traditional Education is based on good tradition.
Age Groups and Grade-levels.
In Montessori schools, “grade-levels” are flexible and determined by the child’s developmental range, i.e., 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, 9-12, 12-15, and 15-18 years of age. In traditional schools, grade levels are not flexible and strictly defined by chronological age within twelve months.
Montessori curricula expand in response to the students’ needs. Traditional curricula are predetermined without regard to student needs.
The individual child’s work pace is honored and encouraged in the Montessori classroom. Traditional classrooms expect all children to work at the same rate.
Montessorians understand that the child’s self-esteem comes from an internal sense of pride in their accomplishments. In traditional classrooms, self-esteem is thought to come from external judgment and validation.
