About Montessori

The pedagogy of Montessori looks at brain development and allows for children to learn at the rate they are developmentally capable, doing things that interest them and in a way that fosters natural learning. The capabilities of young children are astounding if they are allowed to explore and make mistakes.

The environment is an important part of Montessori philosophy. It is a prepared space where children are encouraged to care for themselves and their surroundings. Multi-age classrooms give older children the opportunity to be leaders and foster caring natures.

There are many books written by Maria Montessori about the Montessori method. There are articles, TED talks, videos, and Podcasts. You can get lost in the abundance of research that has been done on the Montessori method and its advantages.
