The Montessori Method

Children learn best when they feel they have made their own discoveries. The materials in our Montessori classroom allow children the opportunity to explore, create, and build understanding through hands-on experiences.  The teachers guide the whole child, following her in her quest for independence, concentration and a sense of order, as well as making social connections with peers and working with purpose.
