Why Choose Montessori?
Today researchers have confirmed Dr. Montessori’s belief that intellectual skills develop when a child’s learning process awakens as many senses as possible and when the child is happy. Montessori education engages children emotionally as well as physically with intriguing, hands-on materials and appropriately challenging concepts. In Montessori our multi age classrooms encourage collaboration between students of different ages. Our multi-age classrooms initially offer your younger child role models to learn from, later as the older child they then learn leadership qualities. As they grow through a Montessori education, children develop their aesthetic, artistic sense and learn both what Dr.Montessori called the Practical Life Skills of everyday living as well as the disciplines of language, mathematics, science, art, music, geography and history. They become confident and eager learners.
Research studies have shown that Montessori educated students are well prepared for life emotionally, socially and academically. Scoring well on standardized tests, Montessori children are above average in following directions, adapting to new situations, turning in work on time, listening attentively, taking responsibility, asking provocative questions, and enthusiasm for learning. You can learn more about Montessori philosophy under our Age Level and Helpful Links tabs.
