What is Montessori?

Montessori education prioritizes the needs of the child; it is an approach as unique as your child themselves. From individualized lesson plans that allow the child to work at his/her own pace, to a carefully prepared environment that helps the child to reach their fullest potential, Montessori education inspires within the child a love of learning while guiding them into becoming successful adults. 

“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of  independence."

Maria Montessori

The Experience

Imagine you are a very active seven year old child who is forced to sit at a desk all. day. It sometimes takes you a little bit longer to grasp concepts and you start to feel anxious because your teacher is moving too quickly through the lesson. You don't understand the concepts but you are too nervous and embarrassed to ask for help because all of your other classmates seem to understand.

The Experience Cont'd

On top of this, your teacher says that she will be giving you a test in just two days. The pressure is building and you are feeling very discouraged ... 

This is the experience of countless students in mainstream education time and time again.

We would like to welcome you to the Montessori classroom, where you (the same seven year old child) have the freedom to move around the environment (satisfying your inner need for movement), while choosing work that sparks your interest. Your highly qualified Montessori trained teachers provide you with individualized lesson plans tailored to meet your unique needs, always meeting you where you are at. You are never worried about comprehending a lesson at the same time as your peers. You are at ease because you know that you can practice as much as you need in order to grasp what you are learning before moving on to a new concept.
