SIMS Montessori is recognized as one of the top authentic Montessori educational institutions at Thiruvananthapuram, attracting the best and brightest educators and staff.
A multi-age classroom is a hallmark of a Montessori preschool that gives children many unique learning opportunities. Younger children naturally learn by emulating children who are older than themselves, and the Montessori classroom takes advantage of it. Younger children watch their older peers model how to participate in the classroom learning activities, how to engage with the teacher and their peers, and how to move from one activity to the next.
