General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our goals and methods are in keeping with the traditional AMI Montessori approach to learning.Our foremost goal is to provide a prepared environment where your child is able to respond to his or her natural instinct to work and learn. Within this setting the teacher nurtures and gives guidance to encourage the child's independence and love of learning. For example, children are naturally drawn to the tasks of daily living - therefore Dr. Montessori established the Practical Life area. This area lays the foundation for the entire Montessori approach to education. The Practical Life tasks are what the new three-year-old first explores in the classroom. As he or she progressively masters various basic skills the challenges become more complex and abstract.
