Curriculum - Key Learning Areas

Exercises of Practical Life:

The activities in this group help a child overcome the natural state of helplessness that he/she is born with and prepares every child to interact effectively with his/her immediate surroundings. Tasks like pouring, tying shoe laces, buttoning a shirt and such are practiced which helps develop concentration, coordination and independence.

Sensorial Awareness:

It establishes a connection between a child and the material world by giving her/him experiential information about innate differences that exist in every object. For example, colours are taught with Colour Tablets where the only difference is the colour. Similarly, in understanding the concept of shapes, children are exposed to objects which differ only in shape, while being uniform in colour and material.


Language is taught using a phonetic approach. Reading and writing are introduced through activities like tracing letters with their fingers, hearing the corresponding sound and then ultimately writing when their muscles are ready for the pencil-hold.


It fulfils the need to quantify and compare numbers and objects. Mathematical concepts are taught through various sensorial materials, and gradually concrete manipulations give way to abstract applications.



General Policies


The Montessori Philosophy celebrates and seeks to instill self-discipline. Respect for self, others, work and time cannot be forced and is natural to children. We follow a strict No Punishment policy and find that positive reinforcements bear better results. If a disciplinary problem persists, parents will be called for a meeting and further action mutually decided upon.

Dress code:

There is no prescribed uniform and children can come in civil/ordinary clothes. In fact, we encourage children to choose what they wear as it is an expression of independent thinking. See FAQ 3 on Parents Page.

Celebration of birthdays:

We are happy to make your child’s birthday special. If you choose to celebrate it at school, please inform us a few days prior to the day. We do not encourage take-home gifts for individual children but welcome books for the school library for all the children’s use. This alternative to a return gift is completely optional.


If your child is not able to attend school for a period of time, the school must be informed in advance through an application for leave. If the circumstances for absence are unexpected, the school must me notified when possible before the child returns to school.


Parents are requested to keep their ward at home when they are unwell. The child should attend school only after all symptoms of sickness have disappeared.

If a child falls ill during school hours or has an accident, parents will be notified immediately. Parents are requested to keep the school informed of any changes in contact/emergency numbers. While basic first aid will be provided, no medication will be administered.

Parents are requested to send snacks/lunch for their wards. Lunch will be heated and served in the Snacks Corner. The school will not offer any food except on special occasions notified otherwise.


School fees must be paid in the beginning of the year for a 12 month period. The management reserves the right to review school fees at the end of each year and amend it accordingly.


Parents are requested to drop their children at the gate and pick them up on time. 

Toddler Group : 9.30 am to 12:00 pm
For children in this age group, we find that a two and half hour session offers sufficient time to engage with the stimulating environment without tiring them out.

Pre-primary Montessori Education: 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
While most Montessori preschools follow a three to four hour day, Dishaa adopts an extended working day of five and a half hours. This allows children to explore the activities they have chosen for the day at their own pace and complete them without being rushed.
