Montessori guides/teachers attend to the whole child: their physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual development. Maria Montessori understood that the, “the concept of education centered upon the care of the living being alters all previous ideas. Resting no longer on a curriculum, or a timetable, education must conform to the facts of human life.”


Tomorrows Child: May 2017. No two children learn the same way or in the same amount of time. Montessori guides/teachers share a conviction that success in adult life is tied directly to the degree in which adults had experienced themselves as capable, independent children. The mantra of a Montessori guide/teacher is to never do anything for a child if you can show him how to do it himself.  We understand that the real work of children becoming successful belongs to the individual child.  In a Montessori environment, each child is respected and treated as a unique learner who learns at her own pace and style. To guide children in their academic life, we must understand that instead of choosing to control, we choose to respect each individual child and know how to guide her to self-fulfillment.
