Our School's Philosophy

Montessori education provides a safe, nurturing environment while promoting the physical, social, emotional and cognitive growth of each child.

Dr. Montessori believed that no human being is educated solely by another person. They must do it for themselves as well, or it will never be done. A truly educated individual continues learning longafter the hours and years he spends int he classroom because he is motivated from within by a natural curisity and thirst for knowledge. Dr. Montessori therefore felt the goal of early childhood education would not be to fill the child with the facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate his own natural desire to learn.

Children between the ages of 2 and 6 have a unique aptitude for learning, which is identified as "the absorbent mind". Since the child retains the ability to learn by absorbing until almost seven years old, Dr. Montessori theorized that their experience could be enriched by a classroom where they could handle materials which would demonstrate basic educational information to them. Over sixty years of history have shown that a young child can learn to read , write and calculate in the same nautral way that he learns to walk and talk.

The hand is the chief teacher of the child. In order to learn there must be concentration. And the best way a child can concentrate is by fixing his attention on some task he is performing with hishands. All the quipement in a Montessori classroom allows the hcild to reinforce his casual impression by inviting him to use his hands for learning. 


Our Collection

The most important period of life is not the age of university level studies, but rather the first period of life - from birth to age 6. For that is the time when man's intelligence, his greatest implement is being formed. But not only his intelligence, the full totality of his psychic powers. At no other stage has the child greater need of intellectual help, and any obstacle that impedes his creative work will lessen the chance he has of achieving perfection.

A child who has studied in a Montessori environment for a minimum of three years is by far more independent, disciplined and brighter than those children who have been placed in a traditional teaching environment. The Montessori child is more aware of the environment and more intellectual. These children have an increased opportunity to be fully developed in the areas necessary to succeed in life.

We must focus on the development of these early years so our children will have the important foundations required for their futures.
