Dr. Maria Montessori’s legacy and deeply influential work started in 1907, when she opened her first school, and has grown rapidly as more than 4,000 schools now bear her name in the United States. Her approach was and is still today innovative, addressing every aspect of growth through physical, cognitive, social, emotional and spiritual means. The goal of a Montessori education is not to drill and memorize but to develop the skills and habits that facilitate a lifetime love for learning.
Teachers are more than guardians - they are partners in the self-directed education of their students. Every child’s interests are heard, helping them to develop greater confidence and self-learn in ways that traditional schools typically do not support.
The video links below highlight the Montessori method and why we consider this approach to education to be the best.
