Founded in 1962, Manor Montessori was the first Montessori school established in the state of Maryland.
The Manor Montessori School provides a warm and nurturing atmosphere for children between the ages of three and nine.
The Manor Montessori School is a Montessori school, not a “preschool” or “nursery school.” This means that each child is free to act independently, to work at his own pace and rhythm, and to repeat any constructive activity for as long as he wishes.
The teacher is constantly observing the child’s needs and individual characteristics, so that she may provide the proper environment for the child’s own personal growth and development.
This enables the child to excel in all areas of life.
Therefore, Montessori is not just a means of education, but rather an aid to life.
