ABOUT MONTESSORI

Dr. Maria Montessori, the Italian pediatrician who founded the method, believed self- motivation to be the key to learning. The Montessori teacher acts as a facilitator whose role is to stimulate interest in all facets of a child- centered learning environment. Montessori education recognizes the importance of all developmental areas, including social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs.

THE MONTESSORI CLASSROOM: The Montessori method uses hands-on lessons and experiences to help students learn by doing. Students learn in cohorts of three age levels. Typically, students will have the same teacher for multiple years. The multi-age classroom allows the students to become part of a learning community that fosters respect, understanding, and tolerance.
