The Montessori Method, developed by Maria Montessori in the early 1900s, is a child-centered educational approach. It nurtures order, coordination, concentration, and independence.
- Mixed age classrooms foster a “family” style of learning exposing children to different learning styles and allowing them to become leaders, mentoring those around them.
- Confidence is gained through healthy independent exploration and uninterrupted work time.
- Individualized curriculum supports each child’s unique interests and development.
- Classrooms are designed to support children, not teachers, and emphasizes the development of the child’s intellectual, physical, moral, social and emotional development.
- Hands-on learning, self-directed activity and collaborative play allow children to make creative choices in their learning while Montessori Guides offer age appropriate activities to facilitate the process.
