Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning The Montessori environment is designed to foster a high level of the cognitive, sensory, motor and social development reflected in each stage of child development. It invites children to engage in independent learning activities of their own choosing, to make their own discoveries about how the world around them works and to cultivate concentration, motivation, and self-discipline -- all qualities that are hallmarks of what we now call executive brain function.
