Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our goals are to kindle interests, develop basic skills and to have the children enjoy their learning experience.

The underlying philosophy of the Montessori System of education is recognition of the fact that no human being is educated by anyone else. Children must do it themselves, and given proper conditions and the right environment they prefer educating themselves.

The aim of Montessori education is to foster competent, responsible, adaptive citizens who are lifelong learners and problem solvers"
