The education of even a very small child…does not aim at preparing him for school but for life – Maria Montessori
Maria Montessori, born in 1870, was the first woman in Italy to receive a medical degree. She worked in the fields of psychiatry, education and anthropology. She believed that each child is born with a unique potential to be revealed, rather than as a “blank slate” waiting to be written upon. Her main contributions to the work of those of us raising and educating children are in these areas:
– Preparing the most natural and life-supporting environments for the child
– Observing the child living freely in this environment
– Continually adapting the environment in order that the child may fulfill his or her greatest potential, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Cambridge Montessori provides a caring community that nurtures each child’s natural curiosity for learning. Our program encourages the full development of social, emotional, physical, academic, artistic and life skills. We instill lifelong learning in our children by allowing them to develop at their own pace, according to their own unique needs. In a friendly clean and safe environment, it inspires them to realize their full potential while enjoying life’s journey.
Cambridge Montessori was founded in 2007.
