Vision & Mission
Our vision is best stated in Maria Montessori’s own words:
“The word education must not be understood in the sense of teaching, but of assisting the psychological development of the child.”
“All humans of every race and every country have children, and the child can become the focus of universal interest … to create a sphere of action that will enable all mankind to work together and live in peace.”
“Follow the child.”
