Research proves that children learn best by doing, Dr. Montessori devised many educational materials that follow children’s developmental needs. Through these materials children discover basic concepts and relationships basic to all future learning.

Much of the equipment designed by Dr. Montessori herself and by those who have continued her work allows the child to find and to correct their own errors in a carefully prepared environment. Mastery of this apparatus builds self-confidence, a feeling of accomplishments, and orderly, logical methods for problem-solving.

The feeling of mastery leads the child to more complicated materials and exercises that teach language skills, mathematics, and other educational disciplines. In short, the children teach themselves, having freedom within limits with the guidance of a directress or director – who is always alert to the needs of each child.

“ The environment itself will teach the child: every error he makes is manifest to him, without the intervention of a parent or teacher, who should remain a quiet observer of all that happens.”

A Few Words
About Chesterton Montessori School Mission

At Chesterton Montessori School we help all children develop a positive attitude towards self and towards all facets of learning. Montessori techniques aid the child in creating a base for a lifetime of learning and achievement in social, emotional, and cognitive areas. This is accomplished in an environment designed to put your child at ease, thereby allowing your child the freedom to select with whom and with what to interact. Chesterton Montessori School and our families work cooperatively to achieve these goals. Our goal is to create a love for learning so that all children will learn to love.
