This is the most important question a parent can ask. After all, there are many private/independent schools to choose from; what makes Montessori the right choice?
Early in the 20th century, decades before early childhood development was a course of study in our colleges and universities, the Italian educator and physician, Dr. Maria Montessori, established her teaching method. Dr. Montessori's revolutionary discoveries caught the attention of educators around the world. One observation became a cornerstone of her method: that meaningful work is essential to a child's development. The Montessori curriculum encompasses that development from birth through adolescence.
We think that once you explore the Montessori approach you will agree that it alone prepares children for what is truly most important: the rest of their life. Montessori Education is a complex interconnection of elements that all work together to assist your child in becoming the self-motivated, independent, compassionate, responsible, critical-thinking individual that every parent wants their child to become.

Montessori Education is universal. It offers children a developmental experience that leads to meaningful understanding and enables them to become capable individuals. Montessori is a scientifically validated approach to learning that supports children to become joyful lifelong learners.

"Our aim is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him/her to memorize, but so to touch the imagination as to enthuse the child's innermost core." ~ Dr. Maria Montessori.
