Why Montessori

Not all Montessori Schools are the Same

When families walk into an Apple Montessori Schools classroom they are pleasantly surprised by what they encounter. The classroom is child-centric, thoughtfully prepared and orderly, while the children peacefully engage in stimulating activities. The environment encourages discovery, concentration, and discipline. Each child is encouraged to move about freely, build relationships with classmates, and pursue their own interests.

Start early

Most brain development happens within the first six years. This time is when children are most sensitive & receptive to learning, particularly around language. Montessori makes the most of these learning opportunities.

Learning for life

Children are natural students—with “absorbent minds” and voracious curiosities. Montessori education works with, not against, those tendencies. Educators guide & mentor rather than dictate.

Nurture the whole child

Learning is about developing intellectual, social and emotional skills. One way to achieve this is having classes of younger and older students together. Older children set an example and mentor the younger children while they gain confidence in their abilities as leaders. Younger students look to older students as role models, which helps them visualize their future learning path.

Engaging environment

A calm, organized, clean, and child-sized environment where children can freely explore and engage in hands-on learning. Children are encouraged to pursue their own, individual activities at their own pace. This teaches valuable lessons in self-reliance and builds self-esteem.

“My daughter is graduating High School and heading off to MIT in the fall. We still talk about what a great environment Apple Montessori was for her. The teachers and staff were caring and nurturing, and she learned so much. When she went into public school for 1st grade, we really saw how much they taught her! […] I believe her passion for math started early, and Apple Montessori really fostered the individuality of learning.”
