Developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), Montessori education is based on these principles, as set forth by the American Montessori Society:

  • The aim of Montessori education is to foster competent, responsible, adaptive citizens who are lifelong learners and problem solvers.

  • The individual is considered as a whole. The physical, emotional, social, aesthetic, spiritual, and cognitive needs and interests are inseparable and equally important.

  • Respect ad caring attitudes for oneself, others, the environment, and all life are necessary.

  • Learning occurs in an inquiring, cooperative, nurturing atmosphere. Students increase their own knowledge through self- and teacher-initiated experiences.

In Montessori schools, students are grouped in small, multi-age classrooms in which trained teachers foster their learning and growth as they are developmentally ready.
