Key Beliefs

There are six core beliefs that sum up the Montessori Method of education.

All children:

  • Have a natural desire to learn.
  • Learn through purposeful activity.
  • Have “absorbent” minds and learn everything they are given.
  • Pass through “sensitive periods” or times when learning comes more easily.
  • Educate themselves through freedom of choice.
  • Become independent, active learners when given a prepared environment.

“He who is served is limited in his independence.”
