“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time human intelligence itself is being formed.”
Montessori recognized that learning is an active process, that children need to explore and discover what is in their world, how it works and their relationship to it. This is a true child-centered educational approach developed by scientific observation of the child.
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, revolutionized early childhood education over 100 years ago. She was the first to recognize that the youngest children are natural, active learners and used the term 'absorbent mind' to describe the amazing ability of children under six to learn.
Latest brain research backs up what Montessori described after scientific observations of children all over the world from birth to adulthood.
Montessori preschools have flourished since 1904. There are now over 22,000 Montessori schools guiding children from infancy through high school in diverse cultures all over the world. Famous alumni include technology leaders, artists and Nobel laureates, who all developed their own talents.
We recognize that children are naturally eager for knowledge and experiences which help them to understand their world and the our goal to support children's natural desire and individual pathway to learn. Using our unique philosophy and materials, the Montessori Method supports the individual child's learning and helps develop focus, scaffold learning and promote self-discovery and self-reliance.
