The Montessori method of teaching is a child-centered educational approach that values the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, and cognitive. Developed by Maria Montessori over 100 years ago, this method is still thought to be the best learning environment for young children.
The prepared classroom encourages independence, freedom within limits, and a sense of order within the child through individual choice and self-paced learning with the teacher as the guide.
Our youngest students, 18 months through 3 years, use Practical Life and Sensorial lessons as a bridge from the home to develop concentration, fine and gross motor skills, language and social skills.
Students in the Primary classrooms work in Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math and Science, as well as Geography, Art and Music.
Elementary Students learn to research and analyze, benefiting from low student/teacher ratio, individual instruction, and mastery before moving on in Language, Math, Science, Geography, Social Studies, Art, Music and Foreign Language.
