The Montessori teacher surrounds children with a carefully planned, stimulating environment. The children discover materials especially designed for their readiness and maturity so that each child develops at their own pace in a noncompetitive environment.
There is a careful blend of structure and freedom. Children have plenty of time to explore their own interests and make friends. They develop initiative, self-discipline, and true responsibility.
The Montessori method is based on nearly a century of careful observation of children. It has been proven to be remarkably effective with children of all ages, temperaments, and learning styles.
"The child is truly a miraculous being, and this should be felt deeply by the educator."
Dr. Maria Montessori
