Tierra Montessori school offers a sensible, structured system that allows a child to develop at their own pace, using their own abilities, with the guidance of a trained Montessori teacher and using specially designed materials.
The method is based on a balance between freedom and structure specifically designed for the young child.
It provides a pleasant environment with carefully designed materials that meet the child's needs.
Children long to do "real" work.
They want to participate in family life and help care for themselves and their environment.
Montessori helps meet these needs to give your child a strong basis in their most formative years for developing into a well rounded, responsible, happy adult.
Maria Montessori had a unique understanding of young children.
Born in Italy in 1870, she was the first female doctor in her country's history.
Her early work was with mentally challenged and very poor children.
By close observation and experimentation, she devised a system of education that helped handicapped and deprived children learn just as well as normal and average children.
