The Montessori approach to education is grounded in the belief that children have a dynamic inner desire to explore and learn about their environment.

In the words of Maria Montessori: “Education is not something which the teacher does, but is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being. It is not acquired by listening to word, but by virtue of experience in which the child acts on his environment . . . We must offer the child the help he needs, and be at his service so that he does not have to walk alone.”

The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr.Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr. Montessori’s Method has been used for over 100 years in many parts of the world.

The Montessori method views the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It attempts to develop children physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.
