Montessori Academy will guide children on their journey into a continually evolving,
dynamic world that engages their minds and enlivens their imaginations. Each
component of the educational journey will instill a love of learning, high self-esteem,
and positive values resulting in high academic achievement.
We will use the principles of Maria Montessori as the foundation of our educational
philosophy in a manner which fosters and elicits learning. We will create evolving
environments, making each day a productive step in the journey to the ultimate goal:
a child who is motivated, independent, and has a love of learning.
To unfold life is the basic task of the educator.
Montessori Academy is a prepared environment for
children. In Maria Montessori’s day it seemed
miraculous that children of four and a half should
be able to write, and that they should have learned
without the feeling of having been taught.
The teacher’s task is not to talk, but to prepare and
arrange a series of activities in the environment
made for the child. Maria Montessori found that
individual activity is the one factor that stimulates
and produces development, and that this is not truer
for the little ones of preschool age than it is for the
junior, senior and middle school children.
