Maria Montessori believed that education was preparation for life. Therefore she created an environment with materials designed to lead the child to independence. The ultimate goal for Montessori was that the child could truly create the person he was to become. The Montessori curriculum is developmental in nature and incorporates a holistic approach to education. The physical, emotional and cognitive needs of the child are met not only through the academic curriculum, but through movement, music, and art as well. We promote individualized learning. As the child gains exposure, freedom to develop interests at a self-paced rate is encouraged.
The goal of the program is for the child to grow in independence, self-discipline, love of learning, self-acceptance, and awareness of the Christian faith and of his spiritual development.
