The Montessori approach supports children in making sense of their world through purposeful and intentional activities, or “work”. The Montessori philosophy is deeply rooted in helping children to build confidence and develop a sense of independence and self-motivation within the classroom as well as in their lives outside of school.
The approach is successful because it draws its principles from the natural development of the child. The inherent flexibility allows the method to adapt to the needs of the individual, regardless of the level of ability, learning style, or social development. Montessori children grow to be autonomous, kind, responsible members of a community eager to problem solve, self-motivate and learn with joyful spirit.
