Welcome to Sharanalaya Montessori School

Our Vision is to be the most respected and valued space, for child centered education

Sharanalaya was started in 2001; a dream to reach out to as many children as possible and make a difference in each one of their lives through a child centered approach to education.

This idea was so passionate that soon Sharanalaya began to take concrete form. Today Sharanalaya has Montessori Environments for Primary (2 – 6 yrs), Elementary (6 – 11 yrs) and ICSE Board for Grade VII onwards with a vision to expand further.

Backed by Mallika Gunasekaran Educational and Charitable Trust, the school has a strong commitment towards enabling children to be independent, engaged and active.
