I was educated at St Bridget’s Convent Colombo 7 and returned there to follow the AMI Diploma in Montessori Education in 2003, at the Good Shepherd Maria Montessori Training Centre. Completing the course while caring for my 2 children, Sheal 5 years and Shemaiah 2 years at the time was quite a challenge! However, having accomplished that feat, I went on to gain more practical Montessori teaching experience and joined an AMI affiliated Montessori House of Children where I worked for 4 years.
To further my education in teaching, I obtained a BSc in Teaching Technology from the Sikkim Manipal University of India.
During these years spent with, and around little children, I have realised that no two children are alike. Some times even twins can differ in personality. There are children who may not be as quick walking, talking etc as other children the same age. To be able to accommodate and understand their needs deeper, I followed a course in Special Needs Education and obtained a Diploma from the Ladies College Vocation Training Centre.
At Little Explorers children find a home away from home.

Homely, safe, and stimulating
Sanchita and her dedicated team made every effort to make Little Explorers a homely, safe, and stimulating environment for my daughter…
Such a lovely place filled with warmth and love just like home.
The decision to enroll our daughter to the Little Explorers at a tender age of 1.8 years was one of the best decisions we made on her behalf!
I was impressed by the cleanliness and the neatness of the premises and the garden that would provide physical grooming for the young kids for their overall development.
Our little girl blossomed in many different fields
We are ever grateful to Little Explorers family for making our child who she is now.
