Our philosophy is based on the ideas of Dr. Maria Montessori who believed strongly in the contributions to humanity that the child could make. Believing that in order to create peace one must start with the child, she designed a prepared environment in which the child was free to develop. Children are given freedom to work at their own pace. They may choose to work with a group of children, individually, or with a partner. Children are encouraged to help one another, and the older children tend to lead the younger ones. The teacher acts as facilitator and keen observer to aid the natural development of the child. Ultimately, children develop a sense of pride in their work and guide themselves to success. Our goal is to create students who love to learn and are joyful in their work.
