The Montessori Method of Education
“Education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potential.”Dr. Maria Montessori
Learning in Action
Dr. Maria Montessori, physician, anthropologist, and pedagogue, studied children of all racial, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds for over fifty years. Her intense scientific observation of the human being from birth to maturity allowed her to distill a body of philosophical, psychological, and pedagogical principals. these, together with a cast range of auto-didactic materials, came to be known as the Montessori Method of Education.
Montessori pedagogy is a comprehensive and continuous response to the vital exigencies of the total human being, adapted to each stage of development.
Key aspects of the Montessori Approach include the Prepared Environment and the role of the Montessori Teachers.
Quad City Montessori School environments are offered from two-years of age through 6th grade.
