Montessori Education

What happens when you send your child to a Montessori school

The Importance of the Early Years -In her book, "The Absorbent Mind", Dr. Montessori wrote, "The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when man's intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed .But not only the intelligence; the full totality of his psychic powers At no other age has the child greater need of an intelligent help, and any obstacle that impedes his creative work will lessen the chance he has of achieving perfection". The Montessori curriculum provides the child with concrete experiences and information about his world. The child is allowed to progress through the curriculum at his own pace and interest level.

Benefits of the Age Mix - A major benefit of the Montessori classroom is the fact that there is a three -year age mix. Our mixed age class inspires younger children to move forward and work at a higher level. Our older students learn leadership and nurturing skills. Together they work in symbiosis. The manipulative materials help children to understand the advanced educational concepts at an early age and help them develop skills of concentration, motivation and self discipline.

Montessori’s academic curriculum is balanced and complemented by programs of Art, Music, French and Physical Education. These programs provide opportunities for creative expression, imagination and encourage students to work together.
