Dr. Montessori believed that each individual human being has an innate unique talent which, when fulfilled, is the individual’s essential contribution to life and the human community on this planet. It is their purpose in life. To discover his or her unique talent, each child needs to be exposed to experiences pertaining to all facets of life. To this end, Dr. Montessori designed manipulative materials for all subject areas, activities which children experience sensorially and interactively in a multi-age and multi-ethnic classroom setting. Freedom within limits leads children to responsible choices, self-discipline, and self-respect. Self-respect leads to respect for others. We are dedicated to fulfilling the ideals of Maria Montessori, who in 1948 and 1950, earned Nobel Peace Prize nominations for “Education for Peace.”
