What is Montessori? 
 

The educational method known as the Montessori method is based on the research and lifelong work of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952). Montessori was an Italian physician/educator who dedicated her life to studying development & observing children in their learning environment. The students learn through exploration, material manipulation, order, repetition, abstraction, and communication. The Montessori method values the impact & influence of critical learning periods in childhood on developing social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and moral competencies.

 
Through individually paced instruction observed & guided by the classroom teacher, the students’ uniqueness is celebrated and an opportunity to reach their full potential is created.  Guiding a student to independence and self-sufficiency while developing a love for learning is a top priority of the Montessori philosophy. 

 

Montessori provides for concept development and skill acquisitions in prepared classrooms with a focus on learning-by-doing. The methods enable students to develop respect for individual differences as they engage in purposeful, collaborative learning. The students use inner discipline, concentration, and task completion for lifelong critical thinking and discovery.
