The Montessori Method of education, as developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered approach based on scientific observations of children from infancy to adulthood. Dr. Montessori’s Method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.
It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child- physical, social, emotional, cognitive.
