Education is the kindling of a flame,
Not the filling of a vessel.


I never teach my pupils,
I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.

- Albert Einstein

The most important period of life is not the age of University Studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six

- Dr. Maria Montessori

The senses are the gateways to the intelligence. There is nothing in the intelligence that did not pass first through the senses.

- Aristotle

The child can only develop by means of experience in his environment. We call such experience work.

- Dr. Maria Montessori

Every unnecessary help is an obstacle to development…These words reveal the child’s inner needs; ‘Help me to do it alone’.

- Dr. Maria Montessori

Education is not about molding children the way you think they should be. Education is about organizing the natural longing in a human being to know.


The hands are the instruments of man’s intelligence….What the hand does, the mind remembers.

- Dr. Maria Montessori

Our Story

The founders were looking for an authentic Montessori education for their daughter and after finding widespread distortion of the Montessori method in most schools that claim to practice it, they were inspired to set-up a Montessori Children’s House of their own following all of the guiding principles.

Our Principles

As Dr. Montessori said, the first duty of an educator is to stimulate life, leaving it free however to unfold itself. We follow the child’s natural development and curiosity to learn allowing them to realize their full potential through the time-tested methods developed by Maria Montessori and improved upon by generations of practice

Our Programs

Our Montessori classrooms are multi-age learning environments with a toddler program for children 1.5 – 2.5 years of age and primary program for children 2.5 – 6 years of age, where children are introduced to Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Maths, Science, Geography, Culture, Art and Music through specific learning materials and activities.

Montessori Training Program

The teaching of the teacher is something far more than learning ideas. It includes training of character. It is a preparation of the spirit.

 – Dr. Maria Montessori

Many can choose teaching but it takes someone special to become a Montessori Directress. In association with MNTTA Bangalore, Sketches is offering a certified Montessori training program which will be conducted in a unique hybrid model (classroom cum online)
