At the heart of the Montessori philosophy is the teacher’s understanding of the nature of the child. Maria Montessori knew that the groundwork for intellectual, spiritual and moral development is laid in the first six years of life. The potential in each child to become an adult of peace and understanding was foremost in her mind; this is especially evident in the writings of her later years. Here at Einstein Montessori we also have a vision of the Montessori child, which is what we want children who spend their early years in our caring environment to grow up to be.
The Montessori philosophy is more than the materials in the classroom, or the teacher giving lessons. It is an attitude toward children, a way of understanding their unique nature and allowing them to grow and develop to their fullest potential.
