Montessori Unlimited adheres closely to the Montessori Method.
This method was developed by Italian educator, Dr. Maria Montessori, in the early twentieth century.
The Method is built upon the idea that children develop and think differently than adults, and that they are competent beings, capable of self-directed learning.
To encourage this capability, Dr. Montessori developed and refined numerous objects and tools that facilitate every phase of development, from motor skills to concrete knowledge to abstraction.
Language, mathematics, spatial learning, self-discovery, music and art - they're all incorporated into the Montessori approach.
We encourage children to work at their own pace in a non-competitive atmosphere, to gain an understanding of themselves and develop a sensitivity to others.
Children may work alone or in groups, all in an atmosphere of courtesy and respect.
