What is Montessori?

Dr. Maria Montessori based her educational methods on the scientific observation of children. 


Guided by her discovery that children teach themselves, Dr. Montessori designed a "prepared environment" in which children could freely choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities.

  • Montessori emphasizes learning through all five senses.
  • Children in Montessori classes learn at their own, individual pace.
  • Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.
  • The Montessori teacher prepares works for the child that are self correcting, and self motivating.
  • The child is drawn to work for the sake of the operation itself.
  • The satisfaction is in the work well done.
