People Ask– What does Montessori mean? There are many misconceptions including thinking it is a religion, special needs program, a gifted and talented school or just for the elite. All of these are incorrect! Named after Dr. Maria Montessori, a doctor of medicine and then education, she was decades before her time. The Montessori Method of teaching children is for all children and has been around for over one hundred years. Tried and proven, (unlike other theories or methods) it works. Dr. Montessori observed children are orderly, sensitive to the environment, enjoy learning and learning at their own pace. The children had periods of time when they were more sensitive to learning different skills and they would work until they accomplished them. She called these times “Sensitive Periods of

Development.” So catch your child when they are ready, don’t pass up that time! Affordable, quality education and child care the emphasis is on the child’s’ development. A Montessori classroom is full of activity! The children are moving about, choosing different learning materials in areas of their choice in a pre-prepared environment, unlike traditional schools. The teachers are trained certified professionals in early childhood. The child is developing coordination, cooperation, independence, and social skills. Learning to make choices and developing a love for learning is what Montessori early learning will do for your child throughout their life.
