Authentic Montessori Academy’s Values
Providing an authentic Montessori environment, in keeping with the core values, and time-tested teachings of Maria Montessori, is of utmost importance for Authentic Montessori Academy.
We value Maria Montessori’s pedagogy and respect her discoveries regarding child development. One being that the environment is a major factor in child development and the adult in the children’s classroom is part of that environment and in that environment, “The adult helps the child to meet his needs to become independent. If the adult acts on behalf of the child, development is impeded.” – Maria Montessori
We value the child’s individuality and support their natural development so that they can become self- motivated to reach new levels of understanding and develop a strong sense of self-esteem in a peaceful, respectful, environment.
