Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

From the Director:

In the Montessori classroom, the teacher prepares the environment with hands on experimental activities in the areas of art, music, science, math, geography, language, daily living skills, and social etiquette. The teacher guides, but motivated from within through the actual work, it is the CHILD who learns, who is itself. (from school brochure)
