Montessori Philosophy and Method
One of the pillars of the Montessori approach is the prepared environment. Each classroom is equipped with materials that first introduce the children to the world through their senses and later lead to reading, writing, advanced mathematics, problem solving, geography, science and cultural studies. Visual arts, music and movement are interwoven throughout the days’ activities. Nearly everything in a Montessori classroom is child-sized. All of the materials are designed to be self-didactic.
