  • Whittier Montessori School provides Montessori Education following the Montessori Teaching Method, we also provide regular teaching for those parents who prefer the standard educational method, which is completely different from a regular school teaching.
  • This regular method of education prepares the child for life.
  • The practical life exercises are the first contact the child has with the Montessori environment.
  • They have been planned in such a way that the child will gain a control of his environment through language and motor control as he progresses in the exercises. Movement and activity are inherent in all the exercises.
  • The child learns through movement. "The hand is the instrument of the mind,"(Dr, Maria Montessori).
  • The child learns faster when he is able to actively participate.
  • This activity also holds the child's attention, provides motivation for the exercise itself, actually calms and satisfies the child's inner needs.
  • Mental and physical stimulation presented together seem to refresh the child rather than fatigue him.
  • The child will want to finish what he has started.
