Enabling students to discover and develop their own unique talents

The Montessori curriculum helps children build within themselves the foundation for a lifetime of creative learning. In a rapidly changing society, this objective becomes even more important. The only valid impetus to learning is the self-motivation of the child. The directress prepares the environment, directs activities and offers stimulation. But ultimately, it is the child who learns and is motivated through the work itself to persist in his chosen task.

The Montessori child is free to learn because he has acquired, from exposure to physical and mental order, an inner discipline that is the core of Dr. Montessori's education.
