Simply put, Montessori provides the best educational start for your children. Dr. Maria Montessori was a highly-educated physician who spent over 40 years observing and educating children. Over 100 years later, her philosophy and methodology is being validated by current brain research and educational studies. For a woman living in the early 1900’s, Dr. Maria Montessori was a pioneer. She was a the first true advocate of the child, and her vision for education has changed the lives of children all over the world.
Children are individuals that have different learning styles and abilities. Imagine a school that has an innovative and collaborative learning environment, challenging academics, and a highly-trained teaching staff; a school that gives your child the freedom to learn as an individual, nurtures each student while encouraging independence, self-motivation, self-assurance, and respect for others and the environment; a school in which students learn not to be afraid of making mistakes, they learn that errors are a natural step in their learning process; a school in which your child will receive a strong education as well as exceptional character development.
Dr. Maria Montessori believed that teachers should focus on the child as a person. Children are taught to ask questions, think for themselves, explore, investigate, and discover.
Concentration is as natural for the child's intellect, all hindrances removed, as it is for the heart to beat, yet we adults often place obstacles in the child's way with time restraints, the desire to 'help' and see what's going on, to praise or correct.
If teaching is to be effective with young children, it must assist them to advance on the way to independence.
