Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.

Our belief in human potential starts with children

The purpose of education is to prepare children for the lives they will lead as adults. The purpose is not simply to transmit knowledge from teacher to student—for what use is learning arithmetic if you don’t have the strength or initiative to do what you want with your life?

Tomorrow's adults will need the capacity to adapt, the ability to solve problems creatively, and the agency to take decisive action.​ So it's important we give them a safe space in which they can practice things like problem-solving and decision-making while they are still young. We don’t know who each individual child will turn out to be in the future. Some will become musicians, some scientists, some politicians.

How can children find out what fills their souls with joy and gives their lives meaning if we don't show them everything the world has to offer? This is the crux of Montessori and our duty as educators and caregivers. We guide children along their journey of self-creation, offering them age-appropriate support along the way.

Maria Montessori revolutionized the way educators view children. She worked to allow children to show their true, capable selves by understanding how they grow and crafting optimal learning environments that grow along with them. We do the same for adults learning to work with children in this method.
