About the Montessori Method
Maria Montessori’s approach was designed to make life engaging for children by providing a classroom environment that satisfies each student’s ability to concentrate and experience in independent work. These skills help the child develop physical, social, and intellectual skills, using their own tremendous capacity to absorb the immediate world as a catalyst for continued education.
The Montessori Method is not the force-feeding of information and skills designed to produce a precocious child. The environment is neither rigidly structured and disciplined, nor disorganized and undisciplined. It is a non-competitive place which allows each child to focus on her/his own work. Many levels of ability can be accommodated in the classroom, allowing for a match of activities and materials consistent with each child’s needs.
