Shriram Montessori House of Children is a leading school in Hyderabad, imparting education based on the globally-acclaimed Montessori method of education. Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori, and is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical and social development.
We pride ourselves on being one of the few Montessori schools in Hyderabad to subscribe entirely to the Montessori method. Also, we extend Montessori education to Lower Elementary (6-9 years) and Upper Elementary (9-12 years), and take it forward with the I.C.S.E. Board for High School, helping students draw the benefits of the Montessori approach till later in their lives.
The materials we use in our classrooms are as prescribed by the Montessori method, and of the highest standards – thus, enhancing the learning experience of the child. Our teachers are Montessori-trained and adept at drawing the best out of your child. The Montessori system encourages children to learn at their own pace, picking up diverse skills every new day, without the pressure that usually accompanies learning. As a teacher, this requires special skills and orientation, which all our teachers go through before being given the responsibility of facilitating children in classrooms.
Another key strength of ours is our low teacher:student ratio. Each classroom is facilitated by two teachers, and usually has about 20-24 children. Children, thus, have enough scope for interacting with teachers and getting their queries addressed in detail.
At Shriram Montessori – just like it is at the best Montessori schools across the world – children are given the freedom to sit and learn at any of the classrooms (across levels). Not just does this respect the natural desire and abilities of each child, it also enables children of different age groups to learn from one another and improve their interpersonal skills. As Montessori children move ahead in their lives, this enables them to feel more comfortable in both large and small groups – crucial in this day and age.
As a true-blue Montessori school, we see several of our students reaping the benefits of the Montessori method with every new day. We are keen to not just educate children, but to shape citizens of the world – individuals who excel in their chosen streams, but also make a positive difference to the society that they are a part of.
