About Montessori

Our school follows the teaching methods and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. She began her professional life as a doctor of medicine. While working with children during her early medical career, she undertook further studies in Anthropology, Philosophy and Education. Dr. Montessori used her expansive knowledge and applied it to develop a new approach for educating children. Her scientific background, years of observation and unique ‘hands on’ learning materials led to outstanding results.


Dr. Montessori’s philosophy of respect for the individual child is evident in our classrooms, which provide a very supportive and enriched environment. Each child is respected as an individual as we guide them in building a foundation for a life-long joy of learning.
