Montessori education, a comprehensive approach created by Italian educator Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900's, develops the unique learning potential of each individual child. The goal of Montessori education is to empower students to become lifelong learners by developing self-esteem, independence, and respect for others and the environment. Certified teachers, carefully prepared classrooms, a wide-ranging curriculum, and an emphasis on outdoor activities are important aspects of Montessori education.
At Discovery Garden Montessori School, this philosophy lives in classrooms where children
in mixed age classrooms, work individually or in small groups with specially designed Montessori materials and other developmentally appropriate tasks. The ungraded, open-ended curriculum allows students to progress at their own pace in a dynamic, energized, free-flowing classroom where learning is tangible.
