Welcome to Sharanalaya Montessori School!

Children Learn By Touching, Feeling, & Doing

Sharanalaya was a dream 17 years ago, a dream to reach out to as many children as possible, & make a difference in each one of their lives. This idea was so passionate that soon Sharanalaya began to take concrete form. Started in 2001, with just 2 children, we have progressed in a matter of 17 years. Sharanalaya has started an elementary environment which caters to the age group of 6 to 12 years.

Sharanalaya functions from very spacious premises in the heart of the city. The interiors are aesthetically designed to provide a safe haven for children. Taking into consideration the concern of parents, great emphasis is given to the safety aspect. Children are always under the watchful eyes of teachers. There are no exposed electrical points of exposed wires. Every precaution is taken to ensure that children are safe and secure.
