Montessori Philosophy

From birth to age six, children are sensorial explores, studying every aspect of their environment, their language and their culture. Though much has been said about the academic achievements of Montessori children, the value lies in the self-discipline, self-mastery, and love of learning that children achieve.

Because interest is stimulated and the Montessori materials are at hand whenever a child is ready, most children begin to read and calculate at an early age. “It is true we cannot make a genius” Dr. Montessori once wrote, “we can only give each individual the chance to fulfill his potential, possibilities to become an independent, secure and balanced human being.”

If young people are to meet the challenges of survival that face them today, it is imperative that they develop to the fullest extent possible their potential for creativity, initiative, independence, inner discipline and self-confidence. This is the central focus of Montessori Education. Dr. Maria Montessori
