Passionate Teachers

According to Dr. Maria Montessori’s observations, children have critical periods of development when they are highly receptive to certain concepts and ideas, akin to sponges that absorb water.

Montessori facilitators embrace a child-centric approach and are attuned to these sensitive periods, allowing them to provide tailored lessons that are optimally timed for a child’s individual developmental stage.
Rather than imposing information, the Montessori Method stimulates a child’s senses and unveils novel insights through experiential learning.

By relinquishing their authoritative role in the learning process, Montessori educators provide children with the necessary tools, guidance, and resources to embark on their own exciting and self-directed discovery journeys, empowering them to find their own answers.
