About Us


What is Montessori?

Children enter the world filled with curiosity, driven by what Maria Montessori called an "inner teacher" to learn and grow and thrive, in a natural, joyful process of self-discovery. Rather than fighting human nature, Montessori education embraces and elevates the child’s natural tendencies, enhancing the child’s innate desire to learn and gain independence.
