From the Director:
As and educational approach, the Montessori method's focus is on the individuality of each child in respect to their needs or talents. The child controls the pace, topic and repetition of lessons independent of the rest of the class or of the teacher. Children who experience the joy of learning are believed to be happy, confident, and fulfilled.
As prescribed by the Montessori method of instruction, children are given the independence to work at their own pace in a nurturing environment. Regardless of pace, each child is given the independent attention they deserve.
We believe in not pushing the child beyond his or her abilities. We give every child the same chance to succeed in our school.
