Why Anokhi

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn” – Benjamin Franklin

We at Anokhi believe there is nothing more precious than being a part of a child’s journey of growth and discovery. Working with children is our passion and their energy and spontaneity helps to keep the child in us alive.

We are about building and nurturing a bond for life with the child and his world in entirety. Our vision is to create a culture where parents and teachers are on the same side.

At Anokhi, we sow the seeds of curiosity in children so that they are lifelong learners. Opportunities are provided to help the child discover the world on his own, through experience and exposure. This helps him to go out and face life’s challenges with courage and confidence.

MathewParent of Rehaan from the Toddler Environment
I did a lot of search/research before sending my son to Anokhi. Did a check on the founders and their experience/expertise/capabilities, but was a bit sceptical considering they were just starting Anokhi. But decided to go with Anokhi after being convinced with their capabilities, after 2 rounds of visits and discussions with the team at Anokhi.My son loved the place from day1 and has never looked back ever since. There were days when he cried to stay back at Anokhi after school time .What I loved about Anokhi is the way they watch each child and give feedback. Never a negative ...

SangithaParent
Srividya taught my child during the important 2.5 – 6 year period in a Montessori school. I really love her commitment to the method and her children. She is the right balance of caring and firm – the caring part encourages children to explore and discover while the firm part helps them learn the importance of boundaries in a sensitive way, the latter being a critical skill for all children.Srividya is knowledgeable and always makes the effort to go deeper and present material in different ways. My son’s math skills are really strong and the credit is significantly Srividya’s for ...

“I have known Srividya for the past 8 yrs.Even after being accomplished in her own field she was willing to have an open mind to learn more about the Montessori method . She gave the course her best and imbibed the Montessori way making it her passion now. From my interactions with her I learned that she has a very strong value system and a positive attitude to life making her a well rounded Montessori guide.
