All of our programs utilize the philosophies and methods of Maria Montessori to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment to help children develop an excellent foundation for lifelong learning. The materials and activities are geared to foster curiosity, love of learning, and self-confidence and to help children develop habits of concentration, initiative, and persistence. The structured environment fosters inner security and a sense of order, while allowing the children the freedom to develop their intelligence and imagination. Emphasis is placed on the development of sensory-motor skills, an awareness of the physical environment, and social development in noncompetitive surroundings. Montessori activities take advantage of the child's sensitive periods for learning during the early childhood years and stimulate the natural enthusiasm for learning.
