The Montessori Approach
Dr. Maria Montessori recognized that young children go through periods of great sensitivity in particular areas
during which one learns more easily than anytime in life. Montessori education is a personalized approach in
which a child, respected as an individual, discovers the joy of friendship in a spontaneous society.
Montessori schools enable children to learn more with greater ease and joy. This system focuses on educating
the whole child – intellectually, socially, and emotionally. It helps children gain confidence and skills while each
joyfully learns to his or her greatest potential.
