Our Montessori Program
Our curriculum is based on the research and findings of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952). Montessori evolved a philosophy of human development that would later spark major educational movements and influence child development approaches throughout the world.
Montessori’s method is structured around, and promotes, the child’s natural, self-initiated impulse to become absorbed in a rich environment and to learn from it. Based on her observations, Dr. Montessori developed specific materials, techniques and curriculum areas that assist each child in reaching his or her full potential.
We provide a calm, secure, stimulating and warm environment where the children’s physical; intellectual; social; emotional and language skills are allowed to progress and develop further as they each reach their individual potential. The program is well integrated so each piece of material is complete in itself but also interrelated to other areas of the curriculum. This allows a child to progress at his/her own individual rate. The curriculum fosters independence, initiative, respect and provides opportunities for the child to focus and the joy of learning.
