Sharanalaya was conceived and founded by Mrs. G. Manju Venkat to fulfill her dream of reaching out to as many
children as possible and to make a difference in each of their lives. The passion she has for serving children has gathered many kindred souls along the way.
Initially, the school started with 2 children in March 2001, and then the strength had steadily risen to 200. The undying thirst to serve children across ages has given birth to the new venture in Akkarai.
The school is backed by Mallika Gunasekaran Educational and Charitable trust, an organization which has a deep commitment toward helping the children realize and accentuate their own potential. Established in the year 2001, our school is an accredited Montessori School by Indian Montessori centre (IMC).
“Sharanalaya is the first Montessori school in Chennai to be recognized by the INDIAN MONTESSORI CENTRE and also recognized by the GOVERNMENT OF TAMIL NADU”.
