Student Testimonial

'Montessori Plus Center has been a great experience that orchestrated my foundation and future as a Montessorian. The provision of a modest and realistic class room set-up and the everlasting fine guidance of my role model and lecturer, Mrs. Hema, aided me to reach my peak, no matter how steep the climb was to the top of my journey. Here, I learned how to teach, and was taught how to learn, and found new values that made me inherently confident and enthused as a Montessori teacher; qualities they helped me build which will stay engraved in me throughout my teaching career. The personalized and streamlined structure of faculty-to-student facility made a huge difference in me, and allowed me to be comfortable to learn and ask for more knowledge. Today, I leave the college ready to share my creativity, and I hope to pass on a bond that I earned with my colleagues at  the Montessori Plus Centre at every place I reach. Thank you for a concrete milestone, and for so carefully nurturing wonderful and honest Montessorians, and thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge with future generations to come! Joining this institution has been worthwhile and an infinite investment for me.
