Montessori Philosophy

    What makes a Montessori education so effective in creating a love of learning?

    The Montessori Method is a system of education based upon the child’s developmental needs for freedom within limits, as well as a carefully prepared environment which guarantees exposure to materials and experiences. It is designed to take full advantage of the child’s desire to learn and his/her unique ability to develop to their potential. Through this, the child develops intelligence as well as physical and psychological abilities. The social nature of the classroom and its emphasis upon respect and concern for others and materials, create an atmosphere in which cooperative interactions flourish.

  • The whole child approach- The primary goal of the Montessori program is to help each child reach his or her potential in all areas of life. Activities are designed to promote the development of social skills, emotional growth, and physical coordination. This allows the child to experience the joy of learning, the time to enjoy the process, and helps to develop self-esteem.
  • The prepared environment- The Montessori classroom is designed with respect for the child. The furniture and equipment are sized for them, creating confidence and a willingness to try new things.
  • The Montessori Materials- The classroom materials are not only accessible, but attractive and enticing. The materials are arranged in a way so the child can follow the transition from one activity to another.
  • The Teacher- Known as the directress, the Montessori teacher plays an important role in the development of the child. Planning the learning environment to guide the child to the next activity. Each child is assisted individually, allowing choices from the many learning activities within his/her range of abilities.
