About Us


Anthea Montessori is a preschool and a day care.Anthea Montessori devotes the morning to a Montessori curriculum, while the afternoon and evenings are devoted to day care. Anthea Montessori provides a day full of experiences that bring to life our vision "To help children become life-long learners, who respect themselves, others and their environment".

Anthea Montessori is the brain child of Mrs. Chitra Raghunathan (Suchi) and Mrs. Anupama Rao (Anu). While Suchi and Anu come from diverse backgrounds, the only factor that binds them is their passionate belief in the Montessori Philosophy. Having seen the positive change in their own Montessori educated children, they have vowed to spread the philosophy. They truly believe what Dr. Montessori said: “Education is an aid to life”. The Montessori philosophy emphasizes that education should go far beyond the mere acquisition of knowledge. It should be a practical aid to life. It should be lifelong learning that changes the life of the individual.

Both of them very strongly agree with the Montessori pedagogy. They have experienced it first hand while working with children from various backgrounds and with various temperaments. Suchi and Anu are more than convinced that the time has come to spread the positivity.
