Harmony Montessori has three locations in Mumbai’s suburbs and is a great choice in terms of education and environment. We really liked the staff (all trained in first aid!) and were charmed by the management team’s passion for their charges’ education. Two of the schools are quite spacious and clean, though we found the Linking Road, Khar location a bit cramped and dim.
One challenge that gave us pause: the staff is adamant about not revealing the exact addresses of the two satellite schools, so as to prevent parents from showing up unannounced before they’ve completed the application process. We found this opacity confusing, especially because with Bombay traffic, parents specifically want to choose schools that are close to home. And we certainly wouldn’t choose a preschool without being able to choose which branch our child attends. We hope this school reconsiders this quirky policy.
