What is Montessori?
The Montessori Method, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered approach based on observations of the young child. The approach has been tested over time, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.
The method views the child as naturally eager for knowledge and, more importantly, capable of learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, and cognitive.
