"Children need to live in a world where self-esteem is protected and encouraged, where the adventures of life are approached with joy and readiness, where learning is always natural, developmentally appropriate and fun!"
Maria Montessori 1870 - 1952


 

Question: Why Montessori?  

Answer:   In short, because it works: 

Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com credits his Montessori education for much of his success.  So do Larry Page and Sergey Brin, founders of Google.com.  In a Barbara Walters interview, when asked the reason for their success, Larry Page and Sergey Brin credited their Montessori school experience, explaining that this is where they "learned to be self-directed and self-starters."  They said that Montessori allowed them to "learn to think for themselves" and gave them the "freedom to pursue their own interests." 

A child learning through discovery

Question:  But what is Montessori, anyway? 

Answer:  Montessori is not just a name or a brand, it is an educational philosophy that capitalizes on the natural way children learn through discovery. 

Maria Montessori

Nearly 100 years ago, Dr. Maria Montessori developed a comprehensive educational approach based on her understanding of children's natural learning tendencies at various ages.

Our Montessori classrooms contain specially designed, manipulative "materials for development" that invite children to engage in learning activities of their own individual choice. Under the guidance of a trained Montessori teacher, children learn by making discoveries with the materials, cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.
