Our Mission

The mission of the Shiny Pearl, Pune is, in the words of Dr. Maria Montessori, "to educate the human potential". We believe along with Dr. Montessori that "the task of the child is the formation of the man, oriented to his environment, adapted to his time, place and culture". Scientific observation has established that education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment. We are not a daycare, we are a school, as we believe that the education starts from the birth and it continues.

 

We, Shiny Pearl, are a community, committed to active, reflective, creative learning. We believe learning is maximized when it takes place in an environment enriched with support, encouragement and assistance. We celebrate the pursuit of lifelong learning and are committed to nurturing high self-esteem and respect for others. We believe that everyone can learn to become better thinkers and independent learners. An integral part of our learning process will be learning how to ask questions, solve problems and make thoughtful decisions. The staff is committed to creating a student-centered educational environment that stresses high expectations and addresses the physical, social and emotional needs of children with a variety of ability levels and learning styles.

As a school, we aim to develop young minds, the future citizens of India. We are dedicated to the individual development of attitudes, skills, knowledge, and responsibility essential to successful achievement in school-life and society.
