Southern California Montessori School

  • Southern California Montessori School is based on Montessori Education which had been created by Dr. Maria Montessori.
  • Dr. Montessori discovered and recent educational research has verified successive phases of growth in children, each with characteristics sensitivities, which guide physical and mental development.
  • These phases of growth, she called "sensitive periods". They are outwardly recognizable by an intense interest, which the child shows for certain sensorial and abstract experiences.
  • Dr. Montessori discovered that the guiding sensitivities constitute needs in the child which demand fulfillment and are universal to all children.
  • Thus, the validity of Dr. Montessori's observations have remained constant since she began her talk of the discovery of the child.
  • Her method is constantly refined and extended under the careful direction of the Association Montessori Internationale.
  • Hence, our program remains not rigid, but faithful to the child's natural principles of development yet cognizant of the ethical and cultural values that tone the child's development in our society.
