Why Montessori? “I was taken with the
Montessori philosophy when I first observed a classroom in 1972. The children were working independently, quietly, & cooperatively.
The materials were so visually pleasing & concrete, and being a visual learner myself they caught my attention. The Montessori
philosophy meets my needs as well as the children’s needs, and with respect of one another we can build lasting relationships
& a love of learning forever.”

Why Montessori? "I love the Montessori method! The environment is nurturing to the children's spirit and mind, and helps
them grow in a natural way."
