Shalom Montessori School aligns it's philosophy with the Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori in the late 1800's.
Whether secular or Judaic studies, we aid in helping our children develop a love of learning through the use of sensorial materials which gives the child's mind an open door to the real world of learning. The Montessori Method places the importance on the child with the center of attention being the lesson.
Dr. Montessori’s Method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.
It is well known that children are naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. Our approach values the human spirit and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual.
"The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say "The children are now working as if I did not exist."
