Why Montessori?

"The man who does not live in an adaptive environment can neither develop his faculties nor learn to know himself." Dr. Maria Montessori

The Montessori Method of Education builds the individual and leads him on the path of life with confidence and independence. The Method has endured because it allows all children to pass through well-defined stages to maturity.

The Learning Environment

The Prepared Environment contains materials and activities, which are designed to attract and motivate the child.

All materials and activities are meticulously selected and carefully placed in the Prepared Environment so that they meet the needs of the children at each stage of development.

The Teacher

The Montessori teacher (directress) is aware of each child in the classroom, knows their developmental needs, understands their strengths and weaknesses and guides each child on his personal path of discovery.

Montessori teachers create an environment suited to the nature of the children that allows them the freedom to interact with their environment. The Montessori teacher's role is to observe the children in order to meet their daily needs and to be a guide and facilitator to the children in their own search for perfection.
