More than 100 years ago, Dr. Maria Montessori observed that children learn best by doing. Her extensive research produced a teaching method that honors children’s social, intellectual, physical and emotional development. Within the carefully prepared Montessori environment, using specially crafted materials, children have the freedom to follow their innate curiosity and develop confidence, creativity, creative problem solving and a lifelong love of learning. ​
True to the Montessori philosophy, Dothan Montessori School provides:
  • multi-age groupings of children in 3 year developmental blocks
  • specially designed sensorial materials
  • certified teachers who have studied the Montessori Method
