The curriculum at MSLF, based on Maria Montessori`s study of child development, is designed to maximize the development of children through prepared environments.
Montessori trained directors conduct carefully planned lessons that children then carry out independently and repeatedly.
Children are encouraged to build sensory-motor skills, socialization skills, high self-esteem, inner security, and abiding habits of concentration.
Great care goes into preparing and maintaining classroom materials that are beautiful and inviting, and serve as essential components of the curriculum.
Montessori pedagogy is over 100 years old and is practiced in nearly four thousand public and private schools in the United States, and throughout the world.
