THE MONTESSORI METHOD
At the Montessori School of Englewood, we strive to champion each child as an individual. Scores of studies show that the more self-confident a young person is, the more likely they are to pursue their unique interests. Thus, honing a child’s individualism plants the seeds for a lifelong love of learning.
Walk into one of our Montessori classrooms and you’ll be struck by the independence and self-confidence our students express. You’ll see children of all ages moving purposefully through an environment specifically tailored to pique their innate curiosity. Our students don’t learn by direct lessons, but via exploration with their senses and minds.
Montessori learning isn’t just an endeavor of the mind, but of the whole person. Our classroom shelves are filled with learning materials designed for Montessori education — like pink block towers, red rods and gold beads. They’re tangible and tactile and, well, fun. With these materials, children understand learning as play, and are inclined to foster a real love of learning.
“The purpose for the revolutionary pedagogist is to prepare students to live in an interconnected global world with personal dignity and respect for all other people as human beings with the same privileges that one seeks for oneself while preserving the earth for those who will come afterwards.”
