For more than a century, the Montessori approach has been preparing children across the globe for life. All areas of the child’s development are nurtured and grown – cognitive, emotional, social, and physical. When you enter the prepared environment (the classroom), you immediately see the specially designed learning materials, children deeply engaged in their work and their learning, and children showing grace and courtesy to their environment and to other children.
"When a child is given a little leeway, he will at once shout, I want to do it. But in our schools, which have an environment adapted to children’s needs, they say, Help me to do it alone."
Dr. Maria Montessori, The Secret of Childhood
