Sanchita and her dedicated team made every effort to make Little Explorers a homely, safe, and stimulating environment for my daughter, Ananya, during her stay there. I truly appreciate the time taken by Sanchita to cater to Ananya's specific development and emotional requirements from day one at the tender age of 1 year and four months and make her feel comfortable in her new environment. This hands-on and nurturing approach I believe contributed to developing her to be the confident and tenacious girl she is today. All the staff pay great attention to detail to make this a clean, wholesome and nurturing Montessori, which I would recommend to all parents wholeheartedly.

Brilliant place for global development and enjoying childhood

Little explorers had been a wonderful place for our child to prosper under the care of trained AMI teachers and the professional guidance of Sanchitha the headmistress. We came across Little Explorers when going through the internet looking for a nursery for our little one. As she was our first child, we were inexperienced and concerned about finding the right place. From our first visit to Little Explorers, we were quite taken up by the homey and clean atmosphere.

We were very pleased when our little one settled in to Montessori very happily. She later on moved on to after care as well. She learned to associate with her peers and challenge herself with various play activities. Parental participation in education is also a top priority at Little Explorers , and there are various events like fathers day mother’s day celebrations where active participation of parents are sought for games etc.

Thanks to her first teachers Aunty Tarika, Aunty Anushka and all the wonderful staff at Little Explorers lead by Aunty Sanchita, our daughter had a wonderful and enjoyable time and was disappointed that there was no Montessori during weekends!

We were very pleased with Little Explorers and have absolutely no second thoughts in recommending it to anyone. We hope our younger daughter will also take it up in the same vein. We wish Sanchita and her team the very best and hope they continue their wonderful work!

Akhaain joined Little Explorers just as he turned 1.5 years. The search was random but we were impressed on our first visit itself. Sanchita lavishly spared her time to mingle with Akhaain, to see if he was ready for toddler school and to brief us on their procedures and protocols. During the past 1 and half years, LE has transformed our little boy from a wailing little toddler to an independent little boy. The small class size, low teacher to child ratio and especially, the personalized services by kind, patient and dedicated teachers has helped our LO bloom, in a safe and supportive environment. As parents, our main concern was the safety of our child at an age where he could not express himself. At Little Explorers, children's safety is at its peak, where teachers are vigilant and parents are always kept updated. Children are handed over to parents at the gate by the Directress herself, who knows each and every child and their parents/carers very well. Parents receive periodic progress reports which are every detailed, including the activities carried out, the related target areas for development and observations on how the child responds to it. Sanchita also finds time to meet parents, speak to them, get them involved when needed, address their concerns and relieves the stress of worried parents. The school is very active involving both students and their parents in events, concerts, and workshops from time to time. Little Explorers is also one of the few Montessori's that employ teachers trained for children with special needs and therefore allows your child to be well monitored through his/her fragile, early years of development.

Despite the heavy morning traffic, we chose to continue with Little Explorers only because we refuse to compromise during the extremely important time of childhood growth and learning. As parents, we highly recommend Little Explorers for quality and holistic early foundation in a safe and transparent learning environment.

Our little daughter Suchie, joined the Little Explorers Toddler group when she was One year and 7 months old. She settled down in class sooner than we expected, with the love, patience and kindness of her two beautiful aunties, Aunty Tareeka and Aunty Rishani.

The Toddler Class became her second home that she never wanted to stay back home even during weekends :)

During her stay in the Toddler class her vocabulary and other skills and activities developed very fast. Her attitudinal and behavioral change during this period was incredible.

A Very big Thank you to Ms. Sanchita Karunaratne who always stood by her side. Her constant guidance and support helped us deal with Suchie at home in better ways :)

Once again we would like to thank the Team Little Explorers for giving our little one an opportunity to be a part of it.

We wish you only the very best in all future endeavors..

When we started looking for nurseries for Himaan we did not know from where to begin.Today we are very happy that we found " Little Explorers" which is a unique place.

It is one of the best decisions we have taken regarding my child's education,

The staff of "Little Explorers" is so caring and devoted and my son loved and looked forward to each day.

I really loved this clean and simple place which gave Himaan a solid foundation.

Mrs. Sanchitha Kuranarathne is a wonderful person, very thoughtful and caring and was very helpful whenever I came across a difficult situation with Himaan.

Thank you very much Sanchitha and dedicated staff, you all are doing a wonderful job!

Little Explorers has been an amazing experience for our daughter Anjou. We are truly grateful for the patience and dedication shown by the teachers and the staff.

Sanchita and her team love kids and have a passion and commitment for what they do and all that happens in the school reflects this.

Anjou received a well rounded education including extra curricular activities which exceeded our expectations of a Montessori. Anjou missed Little Explorers immensely when she moved on !

We wish Sanchita and her dedicated team at Little Explorers continued success!

My son Dulneth joined the toddler class this year. The first few days he found it really difficult to adjust to the set up as this was his first exposure outside the home environment. But the teachers were so caring and helped him to settle down. I received updates on his progress and work and it made me so happy to know that he has done a lot of activities there.

I'm a working mother and I really appreciate the system Little Explorers follows which keeps us up dated with the necessary information of the child and events. Therefore I find it really easy to help my child even during my busy schedule at work.

We were lucky because we didn't have to go 'Montessori hunting'. This was the first Montessori we visited as per a suggestion of one of our family friends. We were so happy with the first impression of the place with regards to environment, security of children, cleanliness, trained staff and the activity resources/materials available.

Looking forward to my child's next level of pre- school education in the Montessori class from May onwards

In a nut shell - I am so happy about "Little Explorers" and its organization of activities.

Thanks a lot Sanchita for your great efforts with all the staff!

Little Explorers was a unique find on the net, when I was searching for a suitable Montessori for my daughter. On our first visit itself Sanchita and her school gave us enough confidence, that it is the place we as parents and Vinali as a kid could be happy.

Vinali today is moulded into an outstanding kid, with so much of positive input from Little Explorers. I love the atmosphere in the school premises, where kids are free and encouraged towards independence. Sanchi and her staff have been amazing with the kids throughout. Special thanks to Chami and Anushka, who Vinali likes a lot.

The methodology of work, creativity and child friendly clean surroundings of Little Explorers made it a perfect place for the foundation of my daughter.

We as parents are glad that Vinali was a delighted Little Explorer during her stay.

Thank you so much Sanchita and your dedicated staff.

My first impression was that I was delighted by this clean, simple but inviting Montessori which I proudly call “Little Explores” that gave my son “Rashad” a wonderful and a solid foundation. The teachers are devoted, caring and skilled at challenging each child to excel academically at their own space. It was also a place where my son loved and looked forward each day.

I enjoyed reading my sons “Progress Reports” which was sent through email (every month) about his academic and social development and all the other key issues which was written in a positive way.

The Directress (Mrs Sanchitha Karunaratna) has a wonderful rapport not only with her students, but parents alike and connects with them very easily. She is one of the most loving, compassionate and dedicated teachers I have ever met.

Thank you Ms Anushka, Ms Chammy, Ms Kathy and Ms Gayani. You all really standout as teachers because of your sheer dedication to your students. Rashad has started off in the right direction by having you’ll as Teachers.

Thank you Seetha for training Rashad to be independent in terms of using the toilet and for taking care of him when his been dropped and picked.

Last but not least Thank you for inspiring Rashad to be the best learner he can be, by seeing the BEST in him. As Dr Maria Montessori says “The education of even a very small child therefore, does not prepare him for school but for life!”.

Dear Sanchita,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all very much for being so wonderful and we believe that our son Ovin has benefited tremendously from being with you all. Preschool is one of the most imminent years for laying the foundation stone for a child's schooling years and eventually the future. We are extremely fortunate to have our son at Little Explorers and we feel that you all have made a big contribution to him becoming a happy and confident little child. We are sure that he will never forget his time there at Little Explorers.

Wishing you all the very best.
