A Montessori Education: Committed to Quality
Every teaching method sparks moments of learning. Then why is a Montessori school so different? The difference is the method itself. The primary goal of Montessori education is to help all children reach their full potential.
The Key Principals of Montessori Education
Movement and learning are closely connected; movement enhances learning.
Children are placed in mixed age groups. These age groups correspond to the different planes of development. Having classes with mixed ages allows children to relate to other children who are both older and younger.
The careful observation of children reveals the proper timing for presentation of new information and experiences.
The sensitive periods of development guide the different choices of classroom activities and lessons in which a child will be engaged.
The classroom experiences should instill the desire of the young child to master his or her environment.
Self-correcting materials allow children to explore their environment and the materials at their own pace.
Montessori Students are…
Joyful, self-motivated, enthusiastic learners
Better socialized and able to solve their conflicts
Fluent readers who are also able to understand mathematical concepts
In possession of natural self-esteem
Courteous, compassionate, and respectful in their interactions
Imagine a School…
where education is viewed not just as a means to an end, but as an aid to life; where the method for learning comes not from a curriculum, but from the natural development of your child; a place where creativity, innovation, and individuality are valued as much as concentration, motivation, and persistence; where your child is not just a student, but also a teacher.
As a student at Atlantis Montessori your child will be laying the foundation for their future educational experiences and more importantly; they will be building the foundation for a happy and meaningful life.
