What is a Montessori Daycare and School?

Based on Dr. Maria Montessori’s principles, base our methods and curriculum on natural child development and their passion for learning.

  • Child-Centered Learning: Individualized pace and interests guide the learning, relying on and celebrating self-motivation and curiosity.
  • Curated Environment: Classrooms designed for exploration and independence, with child-sized furniture and materials.
  • Hands-On Learning: Emphasis on tactile and sensorial experiences to understand abstract concepts and the world around us.
  • Role of Educators: Teachers act as facilitators, tailoring learning experiences to each child’s needs.
  • Holistic Development: Focus on social, emotional, physical, and academic growth.
  • Fostering Independence: Encouraging self-reliance and confidence through practical life activities.
  • Lifelong Skills: Developing concentration, self-discipline, and a love for learning is crucial for future success.
  • Community of Young Learners: Mixed-age groups where older children mentor younger ones, building a sense of community and responsibility.
