"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." -Benjamin Franklin
At Montgomery Montessori School, we believe that every child has the right to go to a school that is a perfect match for them. Montessori is a philosophy with the fundamental principle that a child learns best within a social environment, which supports each individual's unique development.It is based on such premises as:
- Children are to be respected as different from adults and as individuals, who are different from one another.
- Children create themselves through purposeful activity.
- The most important years for learning are from birth to age six.
- Children possess greater sensitivity and mental power for absorbing and learning from their environment than do adults
