About Montessori

Please click here to watch an informative and thought-provoking video or if you’d like to know more, please explore our website and read this article on the history of Montessori which should prove very interesting.

A Montessori education enables self-direction, co-operation and self-competitive activities that encourage a child to develop a strong self-image, high levels of academic and social competence, and the confidence to face challenges with optimism.

It balances freedom with responsibility in a highly-structured and prepared environment.

Equally important, it encompasses a holistic vision of the development of human beings from childhood to early adulthood. Montessori educated children are problem-solvers who can make appropriate choices and decisions, manage their time, and work well with others.

Montessori education is a logical and consistent plan of education that follows a rigorous curriculum which allows the child to be “followed” from one developmental stage to the next.
