It is a comprehensive educational approach from birth to adulthood based on the observation of children’s needs and natural learning tendencies specific to their age and plane of development. It is individual learning in a collaborative environment. The children are guided by teachers who are specifically trained to observe and put the child in touch with exactly what he or she needs at that very moment to learn. The Montessori education cultivates concentration, motivation, self-discipline, a love of learning and innate creativity.
Montessori children learn at their own pace, under the careful guidance of a teacher who knows each child very well, as children remain in the same classroom with the same teachers throughout each program (toddler, preschool, and elementary). This familiarity allows the student and the teacher to collaborate in the learning process, giving the child a sense of empowerment and self-reliance that he or she will carry into further education and into life.
