Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and supported teaching. In Montessori classrooms children make their own creative choices in their learning, while highly trained teachers guide the process. These peaceful classrooms are carefully designed and equipped with traditional Montessori materials so that children can easily follow their own learning journeys at their own pace.
