Miniapple International Montessori School

  • The team of early childhood educators at Miniapple Montessori believe that individualized learning can begin at a very young age. The philosophy is based on the realization that a child's developmental needs are met through freedom within limits in a prepared environment.
  • Over a century ago, Dr. Maria Montessori discovered an approach to education that emphasizes the potential of young children by means of a sensory rich "prepared environment", specially trained adults, and carefully created materials.
  • The Montessori classroom is filled with attractive and interesting hands-on materials.
  • These objects are progressively designed so that concrete tasks and simple activities lead to those that are more complex, abstract, and challenging.
  • Children are helped to help themselves discover, learn, and reach their fullest potential as they make choices in selecting their own work and proceeding at their own pace.
  • This freedom within limits is the key to the wonderful feelings of success and accomplishment Montessori children enjoy as they develop intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally.
