General School Mission

"Montessori is a method of teaching developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900?s. Dr. Montessori, a physician turned educator, used her scientific and biological background while observing children with special needs. She in turn developed a method of teaching, which encompassed the whole child. Her philosophy is that each child innately knows what they are ready to learn and if given the appropriate environment the child would be drawn to activities for which s/he is ready. Because no two children are exactly alike, a Montessori environment allows for each child to learn at his or her own pace. The Montessori classroom is created to meet the child?s developmental needs. Montessori classes are ?multi-age? within three years
