All Day Montessori follows the American Montessori Society’s method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, which is based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr. Montessori’s Method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.
It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, cognitive.
Dr. Montessori discovered that children learn from each other across a spectrum of ages and skills, and it is this kind of learning that fosters team work and empathy. The Montessori approach is as much about a child’s emotional social development as it is of his academic skills. Using this approach our students learn to think critically, work collaboratively, and make good choices.
