We see and value the uniqueness of each child..
Children here are free to learn at their own pace according to their own interests. The teacher's role is to observe each child and offer a brief lesson when needed, challenging them to build on the skills they have mastered.
Teaching Christian values such as...
grace and courtesy
self-control and conflict resolution
and kindness, are the foundation of the Montessori method
Montessori's Christian Philosophy: "Religious, and free in their intellectual operations, and in the work which our method offers them, the little ones show that they are strong spirits, exceptionally robust, as are the small bodies of clean, well-nourished children. Growing up in this way, they have no bashfulness, or timidity, no fear. They show pleasing self-confidence, courage, a calm knowledge of things, and above all, faith in God, the author and preserver of life. The children are so capable of distinguishing between natural and supernatural matters, that their insight has given us the idea, that there exists a period, specially sensitive to faith. The age of childhood seems to be bound closely to God..." -Dr. Maria Montessori
