Montessori Education in the 3-6 year old plane of development is a scientific method designed to develop the foundation for learning.  Within the prepared environment, the desire to learn is continuously being cultivated by trained Montessori Educators. Their keen observation of the child’s physical, intellectual, emotional, social, psychological and spiritual growth and development allows them to respond appropriately to the needs of the child.
