About us

We are here to help parents raise
happy and healthy children

We all need support through the most important period of our children: the early years

We are an educational institute that acknowledges and nurtures every child’s innate drive towards excellence, through the most important developmental period of their lives – the early years. 

We believe that every child is unique, and Peace Montessori offers an empowering environment for them to shape their own lives. Our aim is to help them realize their potential and independence in thoughts, words and actions. At Peace, children are free to explore their surroundings and fall in love with learning. We collaborate with them in their journey of becoming self-sustained individuals. We are dedicated to ensuring that each child has the opportunity to develop according to their individual needs. 

Peace was conceptualized in 2009 and based in Mumbai till 2021. We have now, in 2023, moved to Goa. Our spaces are thoughtfully designed to cater to children between 10 months to 6 years of age.

WHAT IS THE MONTESSORI PEDAGOGY

Dr. Maria Montessori was the founder of this revolutionary philosophy and teaching method. 

Born in Italy in the late 1800s, she initially trained as a physician. It was through the clinical observations that her profession allowed and the study of psychology and philosophy that Montessori developed the passion for helping children learn. 

She concluded that children learnt most effortlessly during their earliest years of development and that, in the right environment, they had the potential to teach themselves and meet their innate needs and potential. She left medicine and academia to pursue and build a pedagogy that facilitated this kind of learning – what we know today as the Montessori educational philosophy, which lives on in thousands of schools and educators across the world. 

Education is among the most powerful tools in the world, helping children grow, transform and in turn, change society. The Montessori method is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaboration. Children are unique individuals and their needs are addressed in the same manner as they work within mixed-age environments at Peace. These environments are meant to serve as a second home, where every object and activity is child-centric and developmentally appropriate, helping children to coordinate movement, build intellect and navigate their surroundings. The Montessori materials at Peace are those conceived by Dr. Montessori herself, allowing for the child engaging with them to learn and feel confident. It is through their own uninterrupted exploration and discovery of the laws of the world that children access their ability to learn, adapt and invent, as individuals and members of society. The drive to overcome challenges is innate, with us from birth. At Peace, as Montessori adults, we help them connect with developmental materials and remove obstacles from their path, so as to see these innate gifts galvanize and their inspirations come to life. Montessori children learn to adapt, persevere and become empathetic individuals, ready to take on the world.
