Montessori Education is an innovative system of education with a history of over 100 years. Based on observations of children from diverse social and economic backgrounds, scientist Dr. Maria Montessori’s theories of child development led her to design a comprehensive system of education responsive to the ways that children learn best. Independent research of these theories and her system of education has demonstrated successful outcomes, both academically and socially and emotionally, for all children regardless of background.
Montessori Schools share characteristics such as specially trained teachers (education programs accredited by Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education- MACTE); multi-age groups of students; and, Montessori philosophy, curriculum and materials that are research based and provide personalized instruction at each level of instruction.
