About Montessori

The Montessori Method emphasizes children’s holistic development as individuals striving for both independence and interconnectedness with the world around them. Montessori classrooms are unique in that they are composed of a group of children of mixed ages who stay with the class community for three years before moving on. Montessori classrooms are also easily recognized by their specialized hands-on materials, which form the backbone of the curriculum and give children opportunities to explore their world, master skills, and internalize new concepts.
