Director's Message

Dear friends of Growing Seeds Montessori School,

Thank you for visiting our website. I am thrilled to introduce you to the newest chapter in our educational journey—Growing Seed Montessori School. It is with great enthusiasm that I share this letter, which encapsulates the essence of what makes our Montessori School a unique and inspiring place for your children to learn and grow. 

“In a suitable environment, a seed will naturally sprout and grow into a tree that bears fruit for others.” This timeless metaphor beautifully reflects the core philosophy of Montessori education. It emphasizes that when children are nurtured in a well-prepared environment and guided by trained teachers, they have the potential to achieve greatness and make positive contributions to the world. 

Throughout my years as an educator, I’ve had the honor of teaching children with diverse backgrounds and personalities. Yet, a shared quality unfailingly emerges when they wholeheartedly embrace the Montessori approach. Within an environment meticulously crafted to nurture their innate curiosity and independence, they not only succeed, they thrive. 

In this environment, where children have the freedom to choose their activities, they naturally gravitate towards their passions and interests. Whether it’s exploring the wonders of math, diving into the world of English, embarking on scientific journeys, or delving into the complexities of social studies, they excel. 

The magic of Montessori, however, extends beyond traditional subjects. Even seemingly simple tasks, such as pouring water, cutting fruits, or assisting their peers, become valuable learning experiences. These activities impart practical life skills while nurturing empathy, responsibility, and a profound sense of community. It is within this nurturing environment that their knowledge and personalities flourish gradually and steadily, much like seeds growing into mighty trees.

At Growing Seed Montessori School, we are committed to providing this transformative experience to your children. Our dedicated team of trained teachers is passionate about guiding your child's journey towards realizing their full potential. We invite you to join us on this incredible voyage. Together, we can watch our children grow, learn, and thrive in the beautiful garden of Montessori education.  

Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or would like to learn more about our school. We look forward to embarking on this educational adventure with your family.  

Warm regards,
Jeevika Athapaththu

“The fundamental help in development, especially with little children of 3 years of age, is not to interfere. Interference stops activity and stops concentration.”
