What is Montessori?
Montessori is a child-centered method of education that was pioneered more than 100 years ago by Dr. Maria Montessori, a physician and educator. She observed that children learn best by doing, and her extensive research produced a teaching method that honors children’s social, intellectual, physical and emotional development.
The Montessori method recognizes that children are sensorial learners who are eager to find their place in the world. Through carefully prepared materials, multi-age classrooms, and trained Montessori teachers, children are encouraged to exercise independence, practice grace and courtesy, and realize their full learning potential.
