MMI Jammu branch has been established in the city of temples to imbibe value based education to children and ensure their holistic development. The institution aims to hone the creative skills of children, while using scientific Montessori methodology to make them aware of various educational concepts. Montessori represents an entirely different approach to education.

The philosophy of the institution is to create a learning environment, which allows children to explore their full potential. The Centre is being run by its Directors – Bhavna and SapnaRohmetra, both of whom have passion towards child education and wanted to give Jammu city an institute – which should become a state of art learning centre, equipped with all modern facilities.

BhavnaRohmetra, who has done LLB from Jammu University, was impressed by methods of integral learning, which are part of Montessori curriculum. She strongly feels that this concept of teaching encourages overall development of child and helps him grow into a balanced individual.

Research work by Educational experts over the years has established the fact that five year old children trained by Montessori concepts had better math and reading skills than their counterparts in Public schools. Early exposure to this scientific methodology laysstrong foundation in students, which is helpful to them for years to come, irrespective of the fact whether they continue with Montessori education or move to a public classroom environment.

SapnaRohmetra, who has done Masters in Economics, got her first exposure to Montessori concepts, when she got opportunity to get involved in Pre-School of Lancaster University, UK in the year 2000.

During her interaction with the specially trained teachers, she realised that the inherent creative abilitiesof children in combination with Montessori methodology are very useful to train young creative minds. The learning environment, which forms the core of Montessori teaching process, makes the children highly receptive and also enhances their grasping capabilities.

Pragya Gupta (B.Sc, LLB, B.Ed), who is Principal of the school is anMontessori trained academic administrator and brings with her 15 years of experience in handling Montessori based educational institution. Being well versed with the Montessori methodology, she also possesses team-working skills and effectively interacts with her colleagues. Her primary focus is to createa well-planned and structured environment in the institute, which will meets the individual educational needsof every child in a natural way.

Besides, she has participated in several workshops of Montessori school leaders and strongly believes that Montessori is a unique method of education focussing on the sensitive period of learning of children (3-6 years). Montessori takes into account all four development areas of the child’s life – physical, social, intellectual and emotional.

Montessori is not simply a method of teaching children to read; it is a philosophy of life!

MMI Jammu branch is spread over an area of 5400 square feet and the institute is equipped with all modern facilities, which are necessary to provide a conducive environment to children. Besides, a lush green lawn and vegetable gardens provides Hands-on learning experience to the kids.

Using the specialized learning equipment pertaining to Montessori concepts, the well-trained teachers implement the specially designed teaching methodology and work to provide a comfortable environment to children.

Spacious classrooms welcome all the kids and special flooring has been done keeping in mind the sensitivity of kids. The toilets have been designed keeping in mind the special needs of children.

The meals for children are prepared in hygienic conditions and the diet plan is nutritionally balanced. The philosophy behind food is to ensure that each child relishes the diet and develops good eating habits, which stay with him for years to come. The kitchen is also equipped with Reverse Osmosis (R.O) water purifier, which removes all the impurities before it is fed to children.

To ensure that the School staff takes care of all specific needs of children, all class-rooms are equipped with CCTV cameras.

A. Montessori (pronounced MON-tuh-SORE-ee) education was founded in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first woman in Italy to become a physician. She based her educational methods on scientific observation of children's learning processes. Guided by her discovery that children teach themselves, Dr. Montessori designed a "prepared environment" in which children could freely choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities. Now, nearly a century after Maria Montessori's first casa dei bambini ("children's house") in Rome, Montessori education is found all over the world, spanning ages from birth to adolescence.

Q. What is the difference between Montessori and traditional education?
A. Montessori emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. Children in Montessori classes learn at their own, individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities. Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning. Montessori classes place children in different age groups

Q. Can I do Montessori at home with my child?
A. Yes, you can use Montessori principles of child development at home. Look at your home through your child's eyes. Children need a sense of belonging, and they get it by participating fully in the routines of everyday life. "Help me do it by myself" is the life theme of the preschooler. Can you find ways for your child to participate in meal preparation, cleaning, gardening, caring for clothes, shoes, and toys? Providing opportunities for independence is the surest way to build your child's self-esteem.

At the school level many homeschooling and other parents use the Montessori philosophy of following the child's interest and not interrupting concentration to educate their children.

In school only a trained Montessori teacher can properly implement Montessori education, using the specialized learning equipment of the Montessori "prepared environment." Here social development comes from being in a positive and unique environment with other children -- an integral part of Montessori education.

Teaching Staff

"Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline and a love for learning" says Dr. Maria Montessori, the brain behind Montessori philosophy. The school can boast of having a team of dedicated and enthusiastic educators. The teachers are qualified in Early Childhood and Montessori Method of Education. This includes familiarisation with the Montessori materials and insights into handling young children sensitively. In line with the Montessori philosophy that each child is unique and therefore should be allowed to develop at his/her own pace, our Montessori trained teachers are dedicated towards developing the full potential of the child. The teachers are motivated to keep themselves updated on policies, content and skill enhancement by attending in-house trainings and workshops.

Support Staff

The support staff maintains a high level of cleanliness and hygiene. The regular trainings are conducted to enhance the awareness towards early childhood needs, health, hygiene, safety, school policies and zero tolerance policy for any kind of child abuse. The support staff is monitored, supervised and guided on regular basis.
