babyThe Montessori Method

Dr. Maria Montessori is the founder of the Montessori Method of teaching. Her life was dedicated to improving the education of children, and began with the early observation that every child spontaneously wants to learn. By the time she passed away, her method was being taught successfully throughout the world.

The Montessori Method is not just a curriculum; it’s a way of life. The Montessori environment supports a child’s natural tendencies to discover his or her own personality, talents, and needs, as well as respecting each child’s choices and interests. The classroom supports freedom of movement – children learn to take care of themselves as well as their environment, and the prepared learning space addresses the academic and social needs of the children.
