Why Choose VOV Academy?

At VOV Academy, the school is like a home away from home; where each child is like a member of our family. Upon entering the school, the children are welcomed into the vibrant atmosphere with positive energy, facilitating a head start to their school day. As the children graduate from the VOV program, some of them choose to return to VOV and pursue the Bal-Vihaar program. Our students feel a sense of connectedness and give back to the community by extending their knowledge in the role of summer camp counsellors and Bal-Vihaar Teachers.

What is Captivating about VOV Academy?

In the Montessori school, the beautifully prepared environment permits children to occupy themselves with constructive activities in the classroom; to stimulate the natural curiosity of the children to follow their interests. Through the presentation of activities, the children learn to make choices, develop confidence, build concentration, and attain independence. Over a period of time, the children develop complex thinking, self-discipline, and the love of learning which builds a solid foundation for life-long learning.

How is Montessori methodology different from traditional methodology?

  • Student –centered lessons and activities
  • Teacher as a guide in the class
  • Students discover concepts for themselves from self-teaching materials
  • Individual and group instructions

  • Emphasis on cognitive development
  • Students choose their own work and learn at their own pace
  • Children gain self-esteem from an internal sense of pride in their own accomplishment
