Why Montessori?

Maria Montessori (1870-1952) founded the innovative method of educating children on the beliefs that children should be given autonomy and the ability to self-direct. She was a forward-thinker and embraced new and innovative ways of teaching. The founders of Google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, attribute their success to their Montessori education because that is where they learned to be self-directed and self-starters. They said that their Montessori education allowed them to learn to think for themselves and gave them the freedom to pursue their own interests.

Investing in your child's future

Montessorians understand that a child's self-esteem comes from an internal sense of pride in his or her own accomplishments. The goal of a Montessori Preschool/Dayhome is to prepare young leaders who are fully qualified to enter the academic programs of their choice at a preferred university or college.

A Montessori Preschool/ Dayhome promotes a hands-on approach to learning versus a focus on seatwork. Students interact with others of different ages, in an environment where younger students can learn from the older children and older children have an opportunity to lead.

The Montessori experience begins with a deep respect for children as unique individuals, and an accredited internationally developed curriculum that includes five main pillars: practical life, sensorial, math, language, and cultural learning.

Why is the Montessori method beneficial to the children?

Doctor Maria Montessori believed that if children were provided with the opportunities to explore and practice their skills, they would make extraordinary progress.

This is why the Montessori method of education has been designed around the unique development needs of the child. The Montessori curriculum, classroom structure, and learning materials have been tested, refined, evaluated, and proven across age groups, countries, and cultures to support and nurture the full developmental potential of the child.

In each of these stages, children are in a sensitive period for learning different skills and activities that will help them reach their next developmental milestone.
