Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Montessori is an individualized form of learning, so this means that the children learn and grow at their own pace.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Where children have the freedom to become who they are meant to be.

At Norwood Montessori we apply the concepts that Maria Montessori developed over a 100 years ago. Her scientific observations led her to conclude that children will develop and even thrive when allowed to do so at their own pace, when the environment is specially equipped with a rich choice of multi-sensory learning materials. Montessori is an education based on auto education and respect for the individual child.
