Montessori in Motion Photo #1 - Primary child at work.
At Montessori in Motion, we believe that each child is a unique individual with unknown potential.
Children are born with a drive to develop themselves.
They learn best from their own physical activity and senses if given the freedom to discover, explore, and create in an enriched environment with supportive guidance based on the observation of the individual child`s interests and needs.
The method of education used at MIM follows those principles laid down by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900`s, with an open-ended approach that encourages innovation and growth.
Learning needs to be integrated, comprehensive, and based on the reality of the child`s world.
Educational experiences must vary in kind and degree in order that each child`s unique potential is challenged.
