PROVISIONAL RECOGNITION Recognition of Montessori Houses of Children is done by the Indian Montessori Centre. One of the stipulations being that the institution should have functioned for a minimum of three years, the Indian Montessori Centre - Karnataka Chapter offers provisional recognition to institutions that have functioned for less than three years. The assumption here is that three years these Houses of Children will apply for recognition.
UJJWALA: This is a forum for the various administrators of Houses of Children to meet periodically to share their good practices, learning, achievements, improvement areas, and joy / success stories. This forum facilitates to bring in some uniformity in several areas of functioning. The name indicates that even good work needs to be polished for brighter sheen.
FOLLOW THE CHILD A magazine that is the crowning glory of work the chapter does for the Montessori movement. For a small amount of Rs.50 it gives a deep insight into the Montessori thoughts and principles. Even the advertisements reveal the spreading of the movement.
CONSULTANCY: Small or big persons need guidance when they want to start Houses of children based on Montessori principles. Many of the little nuances of the Montessori methods at times escape the attention. Our team of consultants will be able to provide the necessary advice. The fees will be determined based on the type of consultancy that is required.
LIBRARY: In a small way a lending library has been established in our office at JP Nagar 3rd Phase, Bangalore. Though it is aimed at helping the students of the Indian Montessori Training Centre, it will cater to the needs of everyone  who is interested.
