About me

Introduction Montessori children learn to take responsibility for themselves. They learn to get along with children of different ages and abilities, to respect each other’s work and workspace, and to treat everyone with courtesy. They play an active part in maintaining the classroom’s physical order. Responsibility and respect for the materials in use become a part of the daily routine. Children progress at a their own pace , one that suits their internal rhythms and readiness for the next level. The child is given the time and latitude to embark on a self-fulfilling cycle of achievement, developing self-confidence and selfworth through the process. Learning becomes a joyful experience, and the distinctions between work and play become blurred. We value these qualities for our children. It is our gift to them, our contribution to a strong foundation for personal growth and the sense of community that they can carry through to their adult lives.
