The Montessori approach to education is child-centered.
Each child is encouraged to reach his or her full potential in all areas of the classroom life: there is no ceiling on the
Montessori teachers do not dominate the classroom but rather act as gentle guides.
Montessori students work in a variety of settings and contexts (from working alone in a quiet classroom to applying lessons learned out in the field with peers), which encourages social and academic growth.
Montessori classrooms use special materials that are beautiful, hands on and designed to
help children develop concentration and work through the process of learning.
A fundamental belief of the Montessori Method is that children learn best within a social environment that supports and respects each child's unique development-a comfortable setting filled with developmentally appropriate materials and experiences that contribute to the growth of self motivated independent learners.
Immersion learning, independent investigation and multisensory instruction are all part of the Montessori classroom.
Montessori students are free to move about the classroom at will.
