The Montessori Method of education was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood.  Montessori classrooms all use the same materials and curriculum.  Children that enroll in Montessori programs in Japan have opportunities to continue their Montessori education in other countries. Estimates indicate that more than 5000 schools in the United States—including 300 public schools and some high schools—use the Montessori program.


Montessori education recognizes that children learn in different ways, and accommodates all learning styles. Students are also free to learn at their own pace, each advancing through the curriculum as he is ready, guided by the teacher and an individualized learning plan.


Students are part of a close, caring community. The multi-age classroom—typically spanning 3 years—re-creates a family structure. Older students enjoy stature as mentors and role models; younger children feel supported and gain confidence about the challenges ahead. Teachers model respect, loving kindness, and a belief in peaceful conflict resolution.
