He said that provision of intellectually nourishing and physically strengthening environment to children in their early years helps in developing their talent and confidence.

Earlier the Principal Mrs Ayesha Wasty in her address said that children in Montessori were exposed to a colourful and healthy environment intricately designed to meet their emotional and psychological needs.
She added that at Montessori a child enjoys freedom of moment and is free to choose the activity of his choice but at the same time he learns the basic principle of “a place for everything and everything in its place”.
