The Montessori Method, created by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered approach to education based on scientific observations of children in a learning environment. The Montessori Method is fundamentally based on serving the whole child, academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. This Method of education has been time-tested for over 100 years, and is currently practiced in countries all over the world.


Our Nido room (“Nido” means nest) is a peaceful, nurturing environment carefully designed and guided following Maria Montessori’s principles for these specific ages (2-16 months). Our Montessori program begins at birth because this is the age when the child feels the unconscious passion and desire to internalize and learn through his/her environment.


The toddlers learn concentration, coordination, language skills, responsibility and respect—all of which prepare them well for a successful and bright future. Our Toddler environment supports the physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of each child. Toddlers strengthen speech and language development; also develop fine and gross motor skills as they explore self, family and the world in which they live.


Our teachers give our 3-6 year olds responsive, individualized attention to help them build their skills in these five important areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math and Culture. This feeling of self-confidence, self-worth and responsibility is perhaps the greatest benefit and accomplishment of the Primary class.
