The things he sees are not just remembered, they form a part of his soul.

~Maria Montessori

Our program is based on the Montessori philosophy of self-paced learning within a structured environment.

The Montessori Method was created in the early 1900’s by an Italian physician, psychologist and educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori Method is often described as an “Education for life.” Dr. Montessori felt the goal of childhood education should not be to fill the child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate his/her own natural desire to learn. This is done in a scientifically prepared environment, one that is designed to cultivate the child’s own natural curiosity and love for learning.

“One test of the correctness of the educational procedure is the happiness of the child.”

~Maria Montessori

Like Maria Montessori, we believe that children possess an “Absorbent Mind,” a mind ready to absorb a second language (Spanish) and the rich environment (Montessori) surrounding them. We provide a diversity of materials and areas where children choose freely and work and learn at their own pace, hands on. In this non-competitive environment, mistakes are treated as learning opportunities. Montessori teaches children responsibility, independence, and respect for self, others and the environment.

We are committed to providing children with environments that are safe, loving, age appropriate, esthetically appealing and that are conducive for our children to grow cognitively, emotionally and spiritually.
