what is montessori?
Montessori education was founded in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori. Dr. Montessori designed a "prepared environment" in which children could freely choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities.

Montessori emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. Children in Montessori classes learn at their own, individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities.
