Montessori Method of Education
“The secret of good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination. Our aim therefore is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.”
~Maria Montessori, To Educate the Human Potential
“The elementary curriculum, like all of Montessori education, follows the natural development of the child and puts that child into the context of the universe in which she exists, including the accumulated knowledge of humans throughout time. We present all areas of the curriculum and give each child the tools necessary to explore further, dig deeper and learn more. By its very nature, the Montessori approach helps the child to develop the whole self, including the social, emotional and physical along with the academic aspects. Children learn to rely on themselves, their unique abilities and what they each have to offer as individuals in the world.”
~Andrea Fleener, Executive Director and Director of Elementary Training
