Montessori Method

What is Montessori?

Dr. Montessori’s philosophies developed around the belief that children are  self-motivated and have the desire within themselves to learn and become  functionally independent.

An orderly environment is prepared for the children allowing the freedom of  choice within limits and freedom of movement. The teacher observes the children  and presents lessons individually, allowing each child to develop spiritually,  emotionally, socially at their own pace.

Children show patterns of concentration and the need for repetition in mastering  a skill.

Grace and Courtesy is a Montessori way of guiding a child into having respect  for the material, the environment and for being sensitive, caring, and kind to  others.
