Montessori philosophy is the foundation of our curriculum. This educational philosophy is based on the work of Maria Montessori (18701952) who saw a great need to reform the educational system of the time. She devoted her lifetime to creating schools that develop the full potential of each individual child. Maria Montessori believed that education could be a powerful force in creating more responsible and caring individuals, and that through observation, individual choice, and a carefully prepared environment great success is possible.
