WHAT IS MONTESSORI?
Montessori is an educational philosophy, movement, and method. First of all, it is a peaceful, respectful, and holistic way of learning founded by an innovative scientist. While observing children, she discovered what they need to naturally develop. This method holds effective and relevant today. Bits and pieces are borrowed by many schools and businesses, however, we offer authentic Montessori in its truest form without the need of an acronym.
A CHILD MOVES HERSELF TOWARDS LEARNING
Trained teachers prepare the classroom environment and therefore can offer activities and function as a reference person. In addition, they observe your child in order to guide the process of learning. It is your child who learns, motivated through the work itself, to persist in a chosen task. They will slowly acquire an inner discipline from exposure to both physical and mental order in their classrooms. This is the core of the philosophy.
JOY OF LEARNING
In addition, habits of concentration, perseverance, and thoroughness are established in the early years. Confidence and learning capabilities that last a lifetime are established and nurtured due to the fact that Montessori introduces your child to the joy of learning at an early age while providing a framework in which individual and social discipline go hand in hand.

THE PREPARED ENVIRONMENT
In addition, Dr. Maria Montessori created what she called the prepared environment. This features an ordered arrangement of sequential learning materials, designed to be developmentally appropriate and aesthetically appealing. Most noteworthy is that Montessori classrooms are noncompetitive while the materials allow each child to develop at her own individual rate. “Never let the child risk failure until he has a reasonable chance of success,” said Dr. Montessori, understanding the need to acquire basic skills before participating in a competitive learning situation.
AN EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
One basic idea of the Montessori philosophy is that carried, unseen within each child, is the person they will become. As a result, to develop to the fullest physical, spiritual, and intellectual potential, your child must have freedom achieved through order and self-regulation.
A SENSE OF ORDER
From a child’s perspective, the world is full of stimuli that appear chaotic. Children gradually create order from this perceived chaos and learn to distinguish among the impressions that assail the senses. Consequently, they slowly gaining mastery of self and the environment.
