"The child can only develop by means of experience in his environment."


                              - Dr. Maria Montessori

Montessori is a revolutionary method of observing and supporting the natural development of children that has been tested world-wide for over 100 years. Montessori educational practice helps children develop creativity, problem solving, critical thinking and time-management skills, care of the environment, and compassion.


It prepares them to contribute to society and to become fulfilled persons. The basis of Montessori practice in the classroom is mixed age group (3 – 6 ages in one class), individual choice of research and work, and uninterrupted concentration. Because children enjoy their work they remember what they learn.
