We believe that children are naturally born with the inner directive to meet their own needs and to learn. Our goal as Montessori educators is to embrace this innate drive by providing optimal learning environments for our bright, engaged, and inquisitive students. Regardless of developmental stage, the opportunity to choose your own activity, to move and work freely within the ground rules, and to work for long blocks of time without interruption, are fundamental elements of learning the Montessori way.
Dr. Montessori anticipated modern science in seeing the importance of deep concentration and the development of the executive functions.
