“We can only give each individual the chance to fulfill his potential … to become an independent, secure, and balanced human being.”

Maria Montessori


Our school adheres to the Montessori philosophy, a method of teaching developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in 1907, which focuses on the individual and cultivates a child’s natural desire to learn.

The Montessori Classroom

The Montessori Method subscribes to the philosophy that the environment in which learning takes place is equally as important as the child and teacher. Students work at their own pace and are able to move freely in a carefully created classroom filled with materials and furnishings proportioned to their size and reach. A feeling of community develops as children of different ages are grouped together in the class. Students work individually or in small groups and progress to more complex activities and materials through a natural sequence that will gradually lead them from concrete perception to abstract thought.
