Why Montessori?

Montessori is a method of education based on the observation of children’s natural developmental needs. The Montessori classroom is specifically designed to engage children in developmentally appropriate, hands-on, freely chosen learning activities. Over three years, the teacher provides individual guidance to each child to help her explore, make discoveries, and interact with the materials while fostering a close relationship. This helps provide the foundation for joyful, motivated, life-long learning. read more...
