What is a Montessori School?
Montessori education prepares the child for a lifetime of learning. “Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire ‘to make him learn things,’ but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.” – Maria Montessori
Montessori schools follow the education method developed by Maria Montessori, an Italian physician. She studied child development, observed children, and designed an environment in which children learn and grow in self-esteem. Recent research into the development of the brain confirms her observations that during the first decade of life children are creating their brains through experiences in the environment and through interaction with nurturing, knowledgeable adults. Children in the Montessori classroom are active learners, experiencing the joy of learning and achievement through the following:
- Individualized Instructions
- Hands on approach
- Prepared environment
- Freedom of movement
- Mixed-age group
To provide education and care for all our children.
Offer a child centered program where different personalities and learning styles can flourish.
Facilitate each and every child’s learning/development and growth according to the Montessori principles and philosophies.
