Overview

Mongrace Montessori House was established in 1964 by the late Monjushree Chatterjee and Grace Wasim Pina. The name ‘Mongrace’ was coined by combining the first names of the two founders and the word ‘House’ was intended to imply a home where children are not exposed to the dull atmosphere or regimentation of a school room but are allowed to progress in an environment reminiscent of their homes.

The Suresh Amiya Memorial Trust (SAMT), a public charitable trust founded by the late Dr. Sadhan C. Dutt, took over the management of Mongrace Montessori House in 1984.

Campus

Suman Sood, principal, Mongrace Montessori House, describes the school as a “heritage building with thick walls, high roofs, wooden staircase, marble flooring and modern infrastructure which creates a grand aura”. All classrooms are air-conditioned and equipped with Montessori learning materials.

Special Montessori modules are prepared by teachers and children from the age of 3+ works on them in a specially designed computer lab. The singing room boasts a grand piano, story telling and reading room displays books and a special conversation room provides a space for children to develop inter personal skills. Moreover the school garden is equipped with a see-saw, slide, merry-go-round and rockers.

Play House – for children aged from 1 year 10 months to 2 years 5 months

According to a school spokesperson Montessori materials and activities are used to help children learn the art of concentration – the first step in child development.
