Our unique environment is designed to nurture the individual needs and interests of each child, with our team of qualified, dedicated and experienced teachers serving as facilitators on their educational journey.


We take immense pride in our meticulously prepared indoor and outdoor spaces, thoughtfully crafted to inspire active participation and holistic development. These environments provide the perfect backdrop for children to engage in hands-on learning experiences while fostering their physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth.

At Montessori @ Home Independent School, we uphold a standard of excellence in our curriculum, challenging each child to strive for personal growth and achievement within the framework of vertically grouped classes. Our goal is not simply to compete against others but to compete against oneself, fostering a spirit of self-improvement and empowerment in every child.

We believe that education is a collaborative effort, and we place great importance on fostering strong partnerships between home and school. By working closely together, we create an optimal holistic learning triad between the child, parents, and teachers, ensuring a well-rounded and enriching educational experience for all.
