The Montessori Difference
You’ve heard of Montessori schools in passing, but have you ever stopped to explore this innovative form of education? Before sending your child off to our private preschool, we feel it’s best for parents to learn more about this effective pedagogical mode.
Montessori schools emphasize learning through all five senses, not just listening, watching, and reading. Our students are granted the opportunity to learn at their own pace, according to their own interests. Every day, your child will engage in a series of activities that peak their interests, rather than following a static lesson plan.
We strive to create an environment that embraces the principles of a Montessori school approach. Our instructors feel that learning should be an exciting process of discovery, which ultimately leads to concentration, motivation, and self-discipline. Keeping this in mind, our private school curriculum take on an entirely different approach to education than standard private and Catholic institutions.
Dr. Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, philosopher, and humanitarian. Not only was she the first woman to graduate from the University of Rome La Sapienza Medical School, but she’s also recognized as the very first female doctor in Italy. Above all else, Dr. Montessori made major contributions to the world of childhood education.
Dr. Maria Montessori was quoted as saying, “education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.” Keeping this in mind, our Montessori school provides all students with a wide variety of materials that are used to direct the interests of the individual and to nurture development.
