What is Montessori education?

Montessori is a brain-based developmental education method that allows children to make creative choices in how they discover the people, places and knowledge of the world. It emphasizes hands-on learning, self-expression and collaborative work in a beautifully crafted environment of respect, peace and joy.

“Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.” -Dr. Maria Montessori
