Southern California Montessori School is based on Montessori Education which had been created by Dr.
Maria Montessori.
Dr.
Montessori discovered and recent educational research has verified successive phases of growth in children, each with characteristics sensitivities, which guide physical and mental development.
These phases of growth, she called "sensitive periods".
They are outwardly recognizable by an intense interest, which the child shows for certain sensorial and abstract experiences.
Dr.
Montessori discovered that the guiding sensitivities constitute needs in the child which demand fulfillment and are universal to all children.
Thus, the validity of Dr.
Montessori's observations have remained constant since she began her talk of the discovery of the child.
Her method is constantly refined and extended under the careful direction of the Association Montessori Internationale.
Hence, our program remains not rigid, but faithful to the child's natural principles of development yet cognizant of the ethical and cultural values that tone the child's development in our society.
