  • 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.
