Maria Montessori School offers a carefully planned, stimulating environment for learning. The learning materials used are designed to provide a wide variety of experiences geared to the developmental needs of children. For the young child, handling, manipulating and working with these materials proves to be fascinating and absorbing. For the older child, the materials provide the method and framework for exploring the Universe and our relationships with it. When engaged in these well-structured tasks, the child experiences a deep inner satisfaction, which leaves him/her with a positive attitude and an excellent foundation for creative learning.
