General Approach to Learning: Montessori

General School Mission

"Montessori education is based on the principle that a child learns best when the social environment supports its unique development.

For this purpose Dr. Montessori created a curriculum and learning materials that provide experiences contributing to the growth of independent learners.

A Montessori classroom is multi-aged. A heterogeneous group of children work in an atmosphere of cooperative learning, peer teaching and emotional development.

Respect for oneself, for others and for the environment is the foundation for the classroom rules that govern the learning community.

The aim of Montessori education is to foster competent, responsible, adaptive citizens who are lifelong learners and problem-solvers.
