Montessori Philosophy

_BMP3150Unlike traditional education, Montessori education is based on the child’s developmental needs for freedom within limits; it is a carefully prepared environment which guarantees exposure to materials and experiences.

Montessori is designed to take full advantage of the child’s desire to learn and their unique ability to develop their own capabilities. The child needs adults to expose him to the possibilities of his life, but the child will determine his response to those possibilities.

Montessori children are usually adaptable; they learn to work independently and in groups. Since they’ve been encouraged to make decisions from an early age, these children are problem-solvers who can make appropriate choices and manage their time well.  They have been encouraged to exchange ideas and discuss their work freely with others. Their good communication skills ease the way in new settings.

Research has shown that the best predictor of the future success is a positive sense of self-esteem. Montessori programs, based on self-directed, non-competitive activities, help children develop strong self-images and the confidence to face challenges and change with optimism.

Christian Montessori considers it a priority to introduce students to the grace and blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We serve a diverse group of students from four surrounding counties and various economic, ethnic, and faith backgrounds by providing them with a friendly and safe environment where they can receive an excellent Montessori education and grow in their relationship with their Creator.
