Creative Montessori Learning Center

Creative Montessori learning Center was founded in 1965, as an early education non-profit organization.
The Montessori approach to early childhood education is based on the method of seeing children as they really are and of creating environments which foster the fulfillment of their highest potential - spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual.
Montessori practice is always up-to-date and dynamic matching the personality of every child. Observation and meeting of the needs of the child is continual and specific for each child.
When physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional needs are met, children glow with excitement and a drive to play and work with enthusiasm, to learn, and to create.
They exhibit a desire to teach, help, and care for others and for their environment.
