Why Montessori?

The Montessori Method supports individual learning by “following the child” and fosters independence. Within a Montessori environment, empathy, a passion for social justice, and a joy for lifelong learning are encouraged.

In Montessori, children have the freedom to choose and construct themselves through their work. They learn how to peacefully collaborate with others within a community with the support of nurturing adults to guide them. Children of Montessori education have a strong sense of purpose and confidently know who they are since they have the opportunity for self-direction. These skills are crucial to thrive in any setting.


Children are valued as unique individuals, learning and advancing at their own pace, guided by teachers.  


Beginning at early ages, Montessori nurtures independence through self-regulation through routines and intentional classroom settings.


Multi-age Montessori classrooms foster a family-like community where older students nurture and mentor younger students. Teachers model kindness and respect in a loving environment.


Working within parameters and classroom routines, students are able to choose what they work on and become active participants and advocates for their own education.

Social Emotional

Montessori's 100-year-old method supports and encourages social-emotional development through support of independence, self-regulation, kindness, and respect.
