Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Montessori Preschool philosophy is most comprehensively described as freedom in a prepared environment. Following the principles of order, beauty, and simplicity, this environment is prepared with materials designed by Maria Montessori to accommodate each developmental stage. Children learn according to their interest, readiness, and sensitive periods. While there is respect for the child’s individualism, the environment in which he or she operates is well structured, providing opportunities for active learning, development of self-discipline, building of self-confidence, and responsible social behavior.
