Little Lambs Philosophy

We understand that children want to learn, so it is very important to teach them how to learn. More than any other approach, the Montessori philosophy considers the whole child and their place in the community. At Little Lambs Montessori School our goal is to give your child the fundamentals to succeed. Our school is dedicated to providing Montessori education for young children in a healthy and well-balanced environment supporting the foundation of lifelong learning skills.

The Montessori method is a child-centered educational method for children, based on theories of child development originated by Italian educator Maria Montessori. There is an emphasis on self-directed activity on the part of the child and clinical observation on the part of the teacher. It stresses the importance of adapting the child's learning environment to their developmental level, and of the role of physical activity in absorbing abstract concepts and practical skills. Our curriculum is occasionally accompanied by an enjoyable mess as children are literally immersed in learning!

"Any child who is self-sufficient, who can tie his shoes, dress or undress himself, reflects in his joy and sense of achievement the image of human dignity, which is derived from a sense of independence."
Maria Montessori
