Montessori Academy Philosophy
The Montessori Approach...
Dr. Maria Montessori opened her first school in Rome in 1907 and revolutionized educational thinking by recognizing the vast learning abilities of young children. The Montessori approach acknowledges that all children are born with unique potential and posses an innate desire to learn. At the Academy, each child is encouraged in a warm and supportive environment to develop this unique potential. This approach is based on the needs of the whole child, respects the individuality of the children, and is consciously designed to recognize and address different learning styles. The environment and activities nurture the child's sense of self, instill a love for learning, a respect for the world, and a consideration for all people.
