Sishu Griha which started as a fledgling institution in the year 1978, as a pure Montessori school, with just 6 students, holds pride of place in Bangalore today as being one of the few institutions that has affected a paradigm shift from teacher-centred education to child-centred education. We were one of the pioneers in setting up the Montessori system of education for schools across Bangalore.
The goal of the school lies in helping the scores of children who enter the portals of the school every year to metamorphose into confident and enlightened citizens of tomorrow. Our motto “Thamosoma Jyothir Gamaya” best explains our intentions. We aim at creating an ambience that will foster a relationship of trust, love and understanding between our teaching fraternity and our children and in turn, our community.
We lay emphasis on holistic education and believe in following a highly efficacious policy in instilling self-discipline and inculcating moral, secular and civic values. We believe in our deep-rooted Indian teaching traditions and, at the same time, we adapt to new ideas in the teaching methodology that are concurrent with the advances made in technology.
Our teacher-student ratio (1:15 in Montessori and 1:30 in Grade 1 and above) maintained is a reiteration of our commitment to providing individual attention to all our children. Not only do we encourage a healthy and cheerful environment for our children but we have also fostered a healthy environment for our faculty. With some of our teachers who have built our family for over 30 years, we are proud to say that our collective experience in the field of education accounts for over 1600 years.
