What Makes Montessori Unique?

Montessori education is based on stages of development that allow the focus to remain exclusively on the child. The Montessori classroom is deliberately designed to facilitate the independent development of the child. We provide an environment that meets the innate desires and needs of young children to adapt, explore, learn, grow and reach their full potential. Our greater mission is to foster the foundation and growth of the child's personality while nurturing him as a lifelong learner.

In contrast to the traditional classroom where students have little choice or control over their own learning, Montessori students are encouraged to pursue their own interests and to collaborate with peers. Self-directed, self-paced and uninterrupted work fosters deeper concentration, which leads to deeper understanding.

Successive levels of education must correspond to the successive personalities of the child.
— Dr. Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence

The Montessori Programs and Curriculum are very carefully and specifically designed based on cycles, each year building solidly on the previous year. In the final stage of each cycle, the culmination and integration of all that has taken place in prior years is usually when the Montessori child truly “blossoms”.  Children move to the next phase of their Montessori development when they are deemed ready by their guides.
