Daffodils Montessori

About Us

Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavour always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.” – Dr. Maria Montessori

At Daffodils Montessori we believe that education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by an individual. It is acquired by the experiences from the environment and not just by listening to words. We provide an environment which lend interest to activity and facilitate the child to conduct his own experiences. Children with Montessori education are better prepared to cope with the complex challenges of the real world.

Daffodils Montessori House of Children was co-founded by Mrs. Annie John and Mrs. Indu Shalini. Their passion for providing an authentic Montessori environment for young students paved the way for Daffodils Montessori.

Annie John did her Montessori certification from Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) in the year 1987. She has over 25 years of experience working in Montessori environment and in conducting teacher training programs. Daffodils Montessori is her dream project where she aims to provide a Montessori environment which adheres to the scientifically proven methodologies developed by Dr. Maria Montessori.

Indu worked as a software engineer for 10 years and quit her job in 2015 to be a full time mom. She did the Montessori teacher training program facilitated by Annie John. She was thoroughly inspired by the Montessori methodology and understood the importance of the formative years of a child from birth till 6 years. This made her determined to educate her child in a pure Montessori environment and became the driving force in setting up Daffodils Montessori House of Children.

Our mission is to make education an exciting process of discovery and to cultivate the joy of learning in children.

Our vision is to popularize Montessori education in the state and to introduce elementary Montessori program for kids of age 6 – 12 years.
