Our mission at the School of Montessori is to provide Montessori education to the children according to the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori, to cultivate the child's own desire to learn by making use of the sensitive periods and the absorbent mind, to develop self-discipline in a child by allowing freedom of activity and maturity, and to educate parents about the Montessori Method.
