Child Name - Nivaan Thomas Abraham, 2016 Graduate
When we were looking for the perfect pre-school for our son, we went to some of the most sought-after Montessori schools in Bangalore. We were directed to Dishaa Montessori by the principals of these popular schools.
Dishaa came highly recommended as a professionally run school by Dharini Srinivasan and Geetha Nityananda, two individuals whose work in the field of Montessori education is well regarded. Within minutes of our interaction with Dharini, we were convinced that we had found a great place for our son to grow and learn at his own pace, in a cute, cozy environment that looked like an extension of our home.
Dishaa is a haven where the intentions are pure, the pace is calming and the space given to each child is nothing short of wonderful, preserving their unique individuality. Learning is never rushed but beautifully incorporated into the child’s natural rhythm. It has been a joyful experience watching our child blossom into a confident, articulate, caring and happy individual. Every staff member, right from Gowda uncle at the gate, exudes real affection and care for the children. Our child settled down into his new environment in no time and in the 3.5 years that he has been at the school, there hasn’t been a single day he has shown any reluctance to go. The sparkle in his eyes when he talks about the things he does at Dishaa - cooking, art, yoga, music, story sessions, library, gardening, field trips – tells us how much he enjoyed himself at the school. The mixed aged group environment cultivates a caring behavior in the children that you can’t help but notice.
Dishaa is very transparent in their dealings. Parents are given a good understanding of their child’s progress regularly, and you get plenty of opportunities to volunteer and contribute. This makes you feel like part of a close-knit family. We will miss Dishaa and to all parents who are looking for a meaningful pre-school education for their kids, we would highly recommend Dishaa.
