Programs

Montessori education is a philosophy through which everything relevant to the life of the child, during their particular stage of development, is provided in an appropriate, stimulating and sensitive environment, so that learning through discovery and self-direction is nurtured. The purpose of Montessori education is twofold: to help the individual to reach self-awareness and self-worth and, to fully develop the individual's various potentialities.
