Our Philosophy

The Montessori Method, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood.

In the Montessori model , mixed age classes provide a real-world experience for the developing child, as peers learn from one another and work together to maintain their community. Within an environment that intentionally balances freedom and responsibility, children learn to recognize the needs of others while also developing life-long skills of persistence, critical thinking, and independence.

Each environment is prepared to meet the needs of children moving through successive phases of development – however several themes run through all Montessori classrooms.
