THE LEARNING VILLAGE MONTESSORI SCHOOL
THE MONTESSORI METHOD
Designed by Italian scientist Maria Montessori in the mid-1900's, the Montessori philosophy is a hands-on curriculum that provides individualized learning to fit the needs of every child. Montessori believed children were like "sponges" absorbing everything through the senses from his/her environment. The Montessori environment serves to provide a learning opportunity that nurtures the child's natural curiosity.

THE MONTESSORI ENVIRONMENT
The Montessori classroom is filled with materials that meet the developmental needs of the child at every level and age within the range. The accessibility of materials encourages the child to strive to try new and challenging things.
The young child is engaged in learning through the stimulation of his/her environment. All the Montessori materials are designed to be held, explored, and manipulated. The young child learns best through the work of the hands.
The Montessori classroom represents structure through the sequence of materials. All the Montessori work is process-driven and precise. The structured environment provides the necessary stability for the child to learn.
