Through careful observation of how a child learns, Dr. Maria Montessori developed educational materials designed to assist children to reach their full potential of self-confidence and independence. Dr. Montessori’s methods follow and inspire the natural enthusiasm children have for learning.
Our classrooms are led by Montessori certified teachers. Each well prepared environment reflects the core Montessori belief that children learn best through their own efforts. The role of the teacher is to link the children to the environment by group and individual lessons.
