The teachers must have the greatest respect for the young personality, realizing that in the soul of the child great values are hidden, and that in the minds of these boys and girls there lies all our hope of future progress and the judgment of ourselves and our times.
– Maria Montessori
An important aspect of the Montessori Method is the role of the adult relationship to the child. We think of these people as directors or directresses rather than teachers. Their role is to guide and direct the child, rather than simply lecture. The directors must “kindle the flame of interest,” then step back to allow the child the joy and growth that comes from exploration and discovery. All our teaching staff are Montessori trained and certified, and adhere to the philosophy of the school and Maria Montessori. We actively support all our staff in their continuing education in the Montessori Philosophy.
