Montessori Method

Our Montessori program is more than a classroom. It is a collective and expressive environment where children are respected and valued as individual human beings. Personalized attention fosters a balanced atmosphere that is cheerful, nourishing and orderly. The classroom is filled with manipulatives and hands-on activities that encourage age appropriate up-close and tactile experiences. The environment encourages the children to explore their own curiosities and challenges them to master such skills as language and math concepts. Through our carefully planned classroom, learning materials, and valued educators your child will benefit from our quality educational program.

  • Autonomy;
  • Refinement of the senses;
  • self-discipline;

About our classrooms

To grasp the essence of Montessori education, just step inside a classroom. Beautiful, calm, inviting, and thoughtfully arranged, colors are muted, the atmosphere peaceful. The space is organized, clean, and uncluttered. The classroom embodies each element of Maria Montessori’s revolutionary approach.

The educator, child, and environment create a learning triangle. The classroom is prepared by the educator to encourage independence, freedom within limits, and a sense of order. The child, through individual choice, makes use of what the environment offers to develop himself, interacting with the educator when support and/or guidance is needed. Also we see the classroom as a community in which respect for the independence and character of your child is paramount. Educators are consistently calm, gentle, soft-spoken, patient, and trusting. They demonstrate respect and compassion. These materials in the classroom are designed to foster concentration, problem solving, and a sense of achievement.

Practical life

Activities develop eye-hand coordination, gross and fine motor skills, concentration, attention to details and a sense of order. Practical Life encompasses four main areas: Control of Movement, Care of Person, Care of Environment, and Grace and Courtesy.



Exercises provide the child with the means to increase his perception and understanding, thus forming the basis for abstract thought. Sensorial materials assist the child in learning to order and classify by touching, seeing, smelling, tasting, listening. These materials also lay the groundwork for writing, reading and mathematics.



Instruction begins at age two and a half with vocabulary enrichment. A phonetic approach to reading is incorporated with a sight-sound-touch presentation of the alphabet. Basic reading and writing skills are emphasized at this level.



Is not learned via rote memorization. The Montessori approach to teaching math begins with concrete objects, moving to the abstract ideas, and then associating the two together. The curriculum goes from learning quantities, to the decimal system, and on to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.



Subjects are on interdisciplinary study of the life of Man on Earth throughout time and in all geographic regions. It includes the study of Music, Arts and Crafts, History, Geography, Botany and Zoology. It allows the child to learn his universe and the interrelatedness of all life.
