Montessori is an individualized approach to education with a child-centered philosophy. The Montessori approach nurtures the development of both academic and life skills for children. Students’ creativity and curiosity are encouraged through the use of Montessori’s unique learning materials and hands-on lessons as students are guided to ask questions, explore, investigate and think for themselves. Social graces, manners and interpersonal relationships are developed through both group and individual interactions.
