The Montessori philosophy assumes that all children are born intelligent.
We believe that an individual child’s learning style is as unique as his or her personality and each child learns in his or her own way at his or her own rate.
Montessori classrooms are conscious of these innate difference, and that’s why we provide a wide variety of settings and activities to appeal to each child’s interests. We offer learning centers where lessons can be completed alone or in small groups, as well as fieldwork excursions led by an instructor where children learn as a class. This variety not only ensures that each child’s unique learning needs are being met, but it also helps young learners develop flexible thinking strategies. Montessori classrooms have high expectations for all students, not a select few.
Once a child masters a new skill, he or she is encouraged to progress to the next level. IN this way, he sets his own pace for learning; she discovers what holds her interests.
In Montessori classrooms, children set the rate for their own advancement. They demonstrate what engages them and show us what they find fascinating. We don’t tell children how to learn but instead let their natural intelligence guide them to the varied activities available in the classroom.
