What is Montessori?

Montessori is an educational approach that has been used for over 100 years and trusted by over 20,000 schools around the world. It is an ideal educational method for young children that involves a series of toys, designed through research to meet their developmental needs. It is comprehensive — addressing the child’s cognitive, physical, linguistic, social and emotional development. Researchers have long recognized the many benefits of Montessori, necessary competencies in a fast-changing world where learning how to learn is the best foundation for success.
