Montessori is a developmental approach to learning that fosters independence and allows children to progress at their own pace. Montessori learning environments are carefully prepared to respond to the child’s innate drive to work and learn. Each environment is led by a carefully trained adult who guides each child on their own journey towards discovery and development. The child is offered lessons with beautiful and engaging materials that support their independent activity. Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952) developed her approach to education through her observation of children and what she recognized as their universal human tendencies and developmental needs. The Montessori Method has been practiced worldwide for over 100 years and continues to offer success and opportunity to all children.
