What is Montessori?

Montessori is a philosophy and method of education developed by Dr. Maria Montessori.  whose vision was to lead children while helping them acquire a sound background for academic and creative skills and interests.​

 ​
A Montessori school establishes a unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of the child's sensitive years when he or she can absorb information from an enriched environment.  A child who acquires the basic skills of reading and mathematics in this natural way has the advantage of beginning his or her education without boredom or discouragement. 


By pursuing their individual interests in a Montessori classroom, a child gains an early enthusiasm for learning which is the key to his becoming a truly educated person.
