The Montessori Philosophy focuses on the development of the whole child. It is based on the concepts developed over 100 years ago by the Italian physician and educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori education is premised upon the following basic elements:

  • a highly skilled educator
  • a respect for the child through individualized education
  • sequenced learning through specially designed, hands-on materials
  • a child-oriented, prepared environment
