ABOUT MONTESSORI


​Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play.  In Montessori classrooms, children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process.  Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.

PARENT’S ROLE

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

we AT LITTLE VILLAGE MONTESSORI ARE UNITED IN our BELIEF THAT ALL CHILDREN:

 

  • Have the power to learn

  • Are curious & creative

  • Can succeed
     

No two students have exactly the same skills or learning style. That’s why we create an individual learning plan for every child. Your plan will combine direct instruction, small-group work, and one-on-one tutoring in a way that works for your child.
