What Parents Say

  • Best Montessori Children
    I believe there is a big difference between “thriving” in a school environment and simply learning what you need to know to move on to the next grade… and have seen first-hand the impact that a program like Montessori has had on my child both academically and socially… I know my child is nurtured both academically and socially, and that the foundation she is building at the Montessori Schoolhouse is setting her up for guaranteed success as she grows up.

    My first impression with Darwin was its neatness and disciplined environment. Next best thing was the genuineity of its Directress that impressed me and I was sure to put my kis at Darwin. Unusual to the pre-schools that I had a looked before, Darwin was unique in many arenas that really made my child enjoy going there. I hope carry forward the best qualities and constantly improve to delight the parents.

    Darwin, is not just any other school with a 'Montessori' tag. Without an iota of compromise, Darwin has been following the Montessori system of education. The teachers are gentle yet firm, well trained on how to handle the children. I love the fact that the emotions and the temperament of the children are validated and utmost care is taken to treat them as individuals (than as kids). My son has been with Darwin for more than a year now. And I can say for certain that I couldn't have found a better school for him.  Thanks to Shantha and the team for coming up with such wonderful & creative activities for the children. These activities not just educates the little ones, but also empowers them, instilling creativity and a sense of independence. Daily feedback about my son through the 'Preschool App', face-to-face interactions, celebrating various festivals, frequent workshops: all these gives a feel that we are constantly connected with the school. True to its name, "Darwin, Montessori House of Children" has now become more of a family than school. Thank you Darwin and team for providing such a lovely second home to my child.

    This is long but they deserve much more than this. Darwin is the best decision we ever made for our son. This school has totally raised the bars for a montessori environment. We love how everybody in there has made their contribution in raising an individual. The kids are given utmost care and they build a huge trust in them. Every emotion of the child is respected and acknowledged. Shantha totally understands the mixed emotions of the parents too and give them their own space to make them feel comfortable.  The staffs are no less, they are compassionate and gentle. They celebrate every festival with so much fun and the kids totally enjoy all the activities around it too. We are more connected like a family now.  Every activity is child led and there is absolutely no pressure, for kids and the parents too. The kids learn their own way.  As a parent, at the end of the day, all we look for is a safe, trust worthy environment for our kid. An environment which lets them grow and learn naturally. And Darwin just meets every requirment.  You guys have played a huge role in Aryan's life and we are so grateful. Thanks to alll of you.  I would recommend darwin hands down to anyone looking for a nice environment for their kid. Wishing shantha and the whole team the very best and may you grow and create many many more houses of children and make a difference in their lives.  If not for moving cities, we would have stuck with Darwin as long as we could. Miss you guys!!!

    My first visit to Darwin (during my school hunting days for my toddler) gave me a warm cosy feeling that was welcoming and truly felt - "a home for children". I doubted my own positive feeling and asked if I can come back again to take a second look with my child and without hesitation the staff member welcomed me. I had no second thoughts for my toddler. The gradual transition (a.k.a. settling period) for a child is carefully planned and each child is allowed his/her own pace to get comfortable with the environment and team Darwin leaves no stone unturned in this regard. The primary caregivers are constantly fed with information about their child and his/her daily routine at Darwin, through a mobile application. The Directress Ms.Shantha and her team conduct workshops for parents to help them understand the Montessori philosophy and aid the child's independence at the home front as well. Take my word, these sessions aren't worth a miss! Team Darwin - You'll have etched a beautiful beginning in my child's schooling memories and I'm proud of that!

    The very first place where i left my daughter with people who were not family. But now they are "extended family" because that is how well they took care of her and comforted her everytime she wanted me. She has learnt quite a number of things at her own pace, without getting into the rat race. Her very first school and my first benchmark for a school as a parent. Highly satisfied, very impressed and am definitely recommending this school to others!

    Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. It requires lot of patience for teachers to be a true Montissorian. Shantha and her team are doing a wonderful job. They are polite and loving, yet firm while talking to the child. My little girl took longer time to settle down in the school as she has a strong separation anxiety. They acknowledged her feelings and were compassionate towards her and helped her through the entire process. She loves her school and so do us. It's a child safe environment and I know she will always be cared for. All the activities they do at the school are purely child led and there is no pressure at any point of time. And all the festivals are celebrated in a homely and informative way so that the child acquires a new skill out of it.Thank you Shantha and team for all that you are doing.

    What I observed from the Montessori system is that the child utilizes his personal interest to explore the world and the world of knowledge. Montessori allows the child to develop at his pace, without holding back those who excel in any given area, or leaving behind those that grasp the concepts more slowly. Montessori teaches the child to be responsible for his own work, success and actions -- teaching the children respect and appreciation for their own abilities as well as those of others
