Welcome to The Perch, where children (our Birdlings) love learning and teachers (Wise Owls) love teaching!


Be an early bird and find out more about the cutest new preschool in Chennai.

What do we teach?

Straight from the heart and soul of the Montessori curriculum, The Perch covers the four areas of learning; exercises of practical life, sensorial activities, language, and arithmetic.  In addition, the Birdlings participate in storytelling, songs, basic science, art and craft activities all supported by the Wise Owls.

The Montessori Experience



EPL (Exercises of Practical Life) are the very heart of Montessori education as they present real life activities with real apparatus creating a bridge between the home and the school environment.



Sensorial learning is a teaching approach that stimulates the child's five senses; taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing. This allows children to use their senses to explore and understand the world around them. 



Introduction to numbers. Quantity first, symbol next, followed by their association.



Introduces oral activities while encouraging order, orientation, and therefore independence by ensuring the child knows the names of the objects in the environment.

Why the Montessori approach?

At The Perch, we embrace the Montessori philosophy of supporting the Birdlings to develop themselves; providing a nurturing and stimulating environment, and  help them soar towards a life of independence.

We love hearing your

chirpy thoughts...

I have known Asfia for over 15 years, first as a parent, then as a teacher. It has been a privilege to work with her. She teaches children with love and displays endless affection toward them.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the beautiful teachers of ‘The Perch Montessori’ Asfia ma’am, Maria ma’am and Suha ma’am for the tender love and care you showered on my son. 

Tejas’s initial reluctance turned into quiet confidence in his day-to-day life. He learnt a lot of practical skills and graces, which I am sure I would have easily forgotten to teach. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It was indeed a great privilege to be able to learn from you.  

Asfia is a beautiful person and a talented educator and parent coach. I wish her all the best for her venture with " The Perch Montessori" opening with its own physical structure. I am sure the school is going to do amazing in her guidance and children are going gain so much who will be associated with the school. I send her lots of love and blessings in her journey towards educating beautiful young souls.
