Welcome to Dayspring Montessori House of Children
Montessori Education is the education system developed by the Educator Dr. Maria Montessori for the kids between the age group of 2.5 and 6 years. This approach provides complete independence and freedom of expression to the kids within the framework of the defined syllabus. The Montessori approach has been accepted worldwide including the schools in India.
“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.”
“Only through freedom and environmental experience is it practically possible for human development to occur.”
- Dr. Maria Montessori
