Indian Institute for Montessori Studies was started in 1996 with the main objective of providing quality Montessori teacher training from Bangalore, India. It also aimed to bring back the ideas and methodologies of Montessori as applied to Primary Education, long forgotten in our country. Keeping the basic principles the same, the training program was adapted to suit the needs of the children and teachers here, by adding elements of Indian languages, culture and History. It is a matter of pride to announce that our efforts have been successful. Montessori Method in the primary school is now accepted by the community, and well established in India. Many of our alumni are working in Montessori Houses of Children, have established educational institutions, have gone on to become trainers in their own rights or are contributing to the cause of the child in many other ways.
