Why Montessori? Dr. Maria Montessori developed a unique educational approach based on her understanding of children's natural learning tendencies. The Montessori environment contains specially designed materials that cultivate concentration, motivation, self-discipline and a love of learning in a peaceful environment. Montessori education, for both the learner and the teacher, continues to thrive with over 100 years of success.
