Montessori Method is good because it stimulates the child's intellect and is sensory based.It is more of practical way of nurturing the child.
In India we do not have montessori till grade 10 but it is there from pre nursery to UKG in most schools.Some very few schools have till grade 8.
if one prefers it is good idea to put your child from pre nursery till ukg,and then from grade I put in regular school.
About the schools you mentioned I do not know anyone.But you have blue bells montessori in kondapur which seems to be good.
it's blue block montessori opposite DLF IT park, Gachibowli. my son use to go there
and its a very good montessorie house.
Thanks Ratna for your quick report. Taraporewala at jubilee hills has till grade 10.
Arsi: Pleae provide your feedback/review on blue block.
U can check ABODE, Gachibowli.
As I understand, your kid had been going to Blue block pre school. My kid is 21 months old and we are thinking of putting in Blue Block school. We are little concerned if it will be difficult to get admission in 1st grade after he comes out of this school as we got to know that getting admission in 1st grade is difficult in good schools.
can you please share your experience with Montessori education system and also Blue blocks.
which school is your kid going in right now?
My 2 kids go to taraporewala montessori school, jubilee hills(Now Shriram Montessori). And I am quite happy with the school. It is not easy to tell which Montessori School is good, unless you visit the school and check for your-self. So, please call the school and have a school tour. Don't forget to talk to the children there!
FYI, taraporewala montessori school, jubilee hills is being taken forward by Shriram Montessori at the Elementary Level, up to the ICSE, and their website is http://shrirammontessori.com
nice to hear that your kids are doing well at montessori. may i know what age they are/which grade they are in ? rightnow our kids are under the icse board. we are seriously contemplating a change to montessori. what is in your opinion the pros of the montessori method ? are there any cons ? your perspective as a parent will be of great help.look forward to your reply.
Nice to hear from you. My two kids are, one in primary(3 Yrs) and the other is in elementary(7Yrs) In my opinion, choosing a good school is a big task for any parent and if it is Montessori, choosing a right Montessori school in an extra effort again :)
If your kids are 3 yr old or at least below 4 Yrs, I think you can check with the school and discuss with them.
Lots of 'positives' to mention about the method and very few negatives for me - The distance to school from my house is 9KM :(
Pros: children are allowed to work at their own pace and at their own interests, which I think is a good preparation for real life. And, children get lots of opportunity to work and chat with other kids, which is very important for social behaviour in future. More importantly, unlike traditional methods, individual needs of the child is respected. There are lots and lots of positives to tell. You can visit and check personally. If you visit the school, don't forget to TALK to the children :)
Cons : If you don't COMPARE your kid with others...no issues. In my opinion, every child is unique. In traditional method we can measure with MARKS and TEST the kid. Here, it is something BEYOND just MARKS and tests.
Please let me know if you need any further information or help.
thank you, Sudhir for your prompt response. How long have your children been in Shriram Montessori.What do they feel about going to school ? Would you recommend this school to others? or are there any red flags that i should be looking for ?
My children are going to Montessori since they are 2 1/2 yrs old and they are happy :)
Check with the distance from your house to school - that's the only red flag I'll give now
Any experience with Taraprewalla s playgroup at Banjara hills?
Did you further get any inputs on Montessori methodology & School from anyone about this? If so please share them with me.
I also have the same questions that you have and am looking for I Class admissions for my kid for 2016-2017.
What are the fees ? for Shriram and Taraporewalla's Montessori schools and does both have till 10th Class?
Does these schools have playgrounds?
Sudhir are your children still studying the same school..... Are you and your kids happy?
