Montessori Education

A unique approach for 21st century learning

An approach based on children's intrinsic desire to learn

The Montessori method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered approach to learning based on scientific observations of children from birth through adulthood. It dates back to 1907 when Maria Montessori opened the “Casa dei Bambini,” or Children’s House in  Rome. Her unique philosophy sparked the interest of educators worldwide, and in the following decades Montessori schools opened throughout Europe and the rest of the world.

At the core of Montessori is the belief that the work of education is to shape the future of humanity, and that the human spirit is a precious and limitless thing to be nurtured and inspired.

Dr. Montessori’s method is time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.  Her tenants and practices, now popular in many of today’s educational models,  have been promoted by noted educators and scientists across time and place.

“An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking; it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live.”

Benefits of Montessori Education

Montessori education offers our children opportunities to develop their potential as they step out into the world as engaged, competent, responsible, and respectful citizens with an understanding and appreciation that learning is for life.

Montessori students enjoy freedom within limits. Working within parameters set by their teachers, students are active participants in deciding what their focus of learning will be. Montessorians understand that internal satisfaction drives the child’s curiosity and interest and results in joyous learning that is sustainable over a lifetime.

Students are supported in becoming active seekers of knowledge. Teachers provide environments where students have the freedom and the tools to pursue answers to their own questions. This fosters learners who value asking questions as much as answering them, and revel in the excitement of learning something new.
