- Changing the world one child at a time

Montessori is designed to help all children reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace. A classroom whose children have varying abilities is a community in which everyone learns from one another and everyone contributes. Children are placed together forming a community in which the older children spontaneously share their knowledge with the younger ones. Moreover, multi-age grouping allows each child to find his or her own pace without feeling ''ahead'' or ''behind'' in relation to peers.

Montessori emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching or reading. Children in Montessori classes learn at their own individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities. Learning is an exciting process of discovery leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline and love of learning. Montessori represents an entirely different approach to education.

School Philosophy

Every child is one-of-a-kind. It is our responsibility as Montessori educators to respect the needs and encourage the independent growth of each student by creating a learning environment that does the same. While well-structured and clearly defined, our methodologies are free to adapt to the individual development levels, interests and strengths of each student.

We firmly believe that the best way for a child to thrive is to empower that child by creating an environment filled with exciting possibilities to learn through all five senses.

''The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.''
