Learning Tree is undoubtedly one of the best schools in Chennai. If your focus is not rat race, and not a force fitted brand name (of school), but more on what's right for the child, and that your child enjoy and blossom in his/her childhood - this is the school. It focuses on building the confidence of the child, independent thinking, and ability to self manage. The founder is the reason for the school's success. It is very child oriented, and runs on the true principles of Montessori. The school focuses on learning milestones for your child and tailors the learning needs based on what's right for your child. If you want the right foundation for your child, this is a place. The teachers (Aunties as the children fondly call them) are extremely caring, focused and very friendly. You can visit the school, and then decide. But anywhere in Adyar, Besant Nagar or ECR (as they have a branch in Kottivakkam), this is the school for your child.
