What exactly is Montessori education?
At its core, it simply is a way of being with children that allows each child to develop fully into the person he was destined to be. Just as you make every effort to ensure that your home is loving and safe – so that your child feels secure and well adjusted – we work diligently to ensure that the physical environment, the teachers and the student community will meet your child’s needs with respect and support at each step in his educational journey.
Instead of expecting that he pay attention to the teacher in front of a class of 30 children, it is the Montessori teacher who pays close attention to your child which fosters a trusting relationship – an educational partnership of sorts – in which he will have faith that his teacher truly understands and respects him for the human being into which he is transforming.
Our world doesn’t need more test takers, memorizers or followers.
Now, more than ever, we need critical thinkers, entrepreneurs and do-ers. Montessori education prepares children to take on the future with confidence and zeal, propelled by the gift of self-knowledge and a lifelong passion for learning.
This is education for our rapidly changing world.
This is education for the future.
This is education for life.
