This view is based on the in-depth observations and analysis made by the founder, Maria Montessori, who developed the Montessori Method over 100 years ago.
The neuro-science and educational research of today is constantly confirming the validity of Maria Montessori’s conclusions.
Her intense scientific observation of the human being from birth to maturity allowed her to distil a body of philosophical, psychological and pedagogical principles.
The main goals of the Montessori Method are:
- Independent, creative thinking
- Self-directed learning
- Good working habits
- Strong understanding of ethics
- Respect for themselves and others
- A love of learning
Most Parents choose to send their children to a Montessori School because they:
- are passionate about their children’s education
- believe in the Montessori Principles
- know that their children will grow in a respectful, safe, multi-cultural environment
