School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"“Help me to do it by myself” a Montessori axiom. The child must educate himself. The
adult prepares the environment and assists in the guidance of the child, but it is the child
that works for the development and completion of skills and the creation of the man that
he is to become.
The Montessori concept of education allows the children to experience the joy of learning
at an early age while preserving the spontaneity, initiative, and curiosity inherent in every
child. This concept promotes the development of independence, concentration and selfdiscipline,
and fosters love and respect for others and the environment. The Montessori
experience provides the child with “preparation for life”."
