Maria Montessori's Philosophy
The Montessori Method
Developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), The Montessori Method is centered upon the belief that one should provide the most positive and harmonious development of the whole child. This ultimately prepares them for a rich lifetime of learning and experience.
Maria Montessori observed the learning process within children of all creeds and backgrounds from birth to maturity. She then distilled this into what is now recognized as the internationally acclaimed Montessori Method.
The Montessori Classroom
The Montessori Classroom is a very carefully prepared school environment with specific materials which both educate and refine the child’s senses while enhancing their understanding of the world around them. This environment functions by allowing the child to develop independently in all areas of learning according to his or her inner psychological and motivational needs. The learning materials are freely available for the children to learn and explore, creating a dynamic learning process guided and encouraged by the Montessori teacher.
Our approach and the Montessori method for child development from 18 months to six years focus on their needs at the individual level.
