Kalpagam Montessori Resource Centre is the only authentic Montessori resource centre in Kanyakumari District, Tamil Nadu, India. We offer the complete Montessori experience to children between 2 to 12 yrs of age, parents and teachers.
It all started in 2014 when we started our Primary Environment (for 3 to 6 yr old children). At first, we were quite apprehensive of the reception of the method among parents. However, all the parents who were associated with us were very enthusiastic and urged us to keep going forward. In 2017, we expanded to the Elementary Environment (6 to 12 yr old children) and in 2018 we opened the Toddler Environment (1.5-3 yr old children) as well.
We have been conducting Montessori Teacher Training (Diploma & Certificate courses) for adults in association with the National Council for Vocation and Research Training - NCVRT (New Delhi) since 2014. All our pass-out students have been placed in various schools (CBSE and Balwadis) across India and in some countries abroad. We also conduct regular online orientation classes and workshops for parents and teachers throughout the year.
Since 2020, with the pandemic, we have launched a range of homeschooling Montessori materials called "Montessori In A Box". The idea is to make the Montessori materials available at affordable prices for homeschoolers. We also launched a collection of Montessori home furniture called 'Childniture' which will aid in taking Montessori home.
