Our Educational Philosophy


In 1906 an Italian physician named Maria Montessori conceived and developed a system of educating young children based on her observations and conclusions about how children learn. This system is commonly known as the Montessori Philosophy or just as often, the Montessori Method.

Dr. Montessori’s materials and methods were based on her belief that education involves the unfolding and development of the child’s innate abilities, talents and interests.

Dr. Montessori’s scientific and humanistic approach rapidly spread resulting in training programs and schools opening first in Europe and then all around the globe.

It wasn’t long before the first Montessori school was founded in the United States. Today there are currently over 3,000 independent and 130 public school systems using the Montessori method in the US alone.

  • Foundation

    The core principle of the Montessori Philosophy of education is that all children carry within “the adult they will become”.

    In order to develop their physical and intellectual powers to the fullest, children must have freedom which is to be achieved through order and self-discipline.

    The world of the child is full of sights and sounds which at first appear chaotic. From this chaos children gradually create order and learn to distinguish among impressions that assail their senses, slowly but surely gaining mastery of Self and the environment.

  • Montessori Philosophy of Education

    The goals of the Montessori Philosophy of education include cultivating each child’s natural desire to learn; acquiring and mastering skills; learning responsibility and cooperation; fostering strong, positive feelings about oneself and others. Montessori education focuses on developing a child’s creativity, problem solving, social and time-management skills within a classroom community.

  • The Whole Child

    By utilizing a thoughtfully designed environment, the Montessori method focuses on the development of the whole child – cognitive preparation; social skills; physical coordination & emotional growth. Rather than enduring group lessons led by an adult, the Montessori approach in the classroom centers on respected individual choice of work & research in an environment that encourages uninterrupted concentration.
