Philosophy

Dr. Maria Montessori’s system of education is both a philosophy of child growth and a rationale for guiding such growth, which has been consistently successful since 1907. This system is based on the child’s developmental need for freedom with limits and uses a carefully prepared environment. The prepared environment guarantees exposure to materials and experiences through which the child develops intelligence as well as physical and psychological abilities. The Montessori method is designed to take full advantage of the unique ability of young children to develop their own capabilities through self-motivation. Learn More
