General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that the process of life long learning is an exciting journey. The child learns through wonderful and broad experiences that are exposed to him/her at an early age. We argue that children learn best when exposed to various stimuli in a prepared environment with gentle guidance and freedom to make choices. Inner discipline can only be achieved in an atmosphere of freedom where the child is trusted to make choices that are appropriate for their own level of readiness. The teacher is there to encourage, redirect, and supervise, but it is the child that learns through personal motivation in manipulating the work itself within the prepared environment.
