  • What is Montessori?

    Montessori is an internationally recognized approach to education developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori in 1907 and characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and a respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development.  It is an individualized approach to education for children toddler through high school that helps each child reach their full potential in all areas of life.  It is a student-centered approach that encourages creativity and curiosity and leads children to ask questions, explore, investigate and think for themselves as they acquire new skills.  

    Montessori teachers (called directresses) are specially trained as guides and coach and facilitate each child’s learning through continuous observation and assessment.

    Our aim is not merely to make children understand, and still less to force them to memorize, but so to touch their imaginations as to enthuse them to their innermost core.”
