Coral Springs Montessori
- At Coral Springs Montessori, we seek to educate the whole child by cultivating the child's natural desire to learn.
- Dr. Montessori, the founder of the Montessori teaching approach, believed that a child must not only be given specific information, but must be taught how to develop his natural capacities and desire for learning to help him become a life-long learner and reach his maximum potential.
- Our mission is to provide a safe, loving, and enriched academic enviornment for children.
- We stress independent learning. The freedom to develop without boundaries is cited by experts as one of the biggest advantages in Montessori education.
- Multi-age grouping allows young children to learn from older ones, and older children to teach and mentor the younger ones as they continue to progress with the advanced lessons.
- We also stress social and moral development, conflict resolution, learning by doing, fostering curiosity and developing self-esteem.
- We strive to develop self-discipline and self-control, as opposed to good behavior imposed by rewards and punishments.
