Savi Montessori is created by Sujata and Abhishek Date with the goal of nurturing successful global citizens by providing holistic education and 21st-century skills using the Montessori principles. We believe that the traditional rote learning and the mass curriculum approach will not make our children successful. Only with education that fosters 21st Century skills, can children compete with the world.

We teach the children 21st century skills through

  • Language Development
  • Cognitive Development
  • Social Development
  • Gross & Fine Motor Development
  • Character Development

Our world in the future will need problem solvers, critical thinkers, creative and innovative minds. The way we learnt in school will not be relevant when our children grow up. 21st-Century skills and competencies are required for our children to be successful in their life. Only with 21st-century skills will our children become critical thinkers, problem solvers, creative and collaborative global citizens.
