Montessori is a scientific method of education developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, aimed towards educating children through self-directed activities in their prepared environment. It focuses on the whole child's physical, spiritual, social, mental, and emotional development and instills mindfulness, kindness, peace, and freedom within a prepared environment.

The Montessori classroom is orderly and organized to help the child develop a sense of order, explore, learn independently, stay calm, and be respectful and peaceful.

The Montessori curriculum includes areas of Practical Life which consist of exercises to enhance motor skills used in everyday life; Sensorial Education to explore the child's senses; Cultural Arts to learn about the world around them; Math to understand mathematical functions in concrete form; and Language to teach vocabulary, writing, and reading skills.
