The Montessori system of education is both a philosophy of child growth and a rationale for guiding this growth. It is based on the work of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) world famous educator and psychologist. It is built on the child’s need for freedom within limits.

The classroom environment is prepared in such a way that the child moves naturally through a progression of materials which satisfy her/his emotional physical intellectual and social needs.
A few of the fundamental concepts of the Montessori program at Maple Park Montessori School are:
Children naturally have a deep love and need for purposeful work.
A Montessori environment like ours plants the impression early on that learning is not a passive experience. Our students are invested in the process.
Children should be respected as different from adults and as individuals who differ from each other.
The unconscious learning which takes place from birth to age 3 is gradually brought to a conscious level by age 6. Early experience in the hands-on environment of a Montessori classroom prepares the brain for future learning.
When a child is in an environment where choices can be made it empowers them. This builds their security and confidence and develops the mindset “I can handle my world.”
