E.P. Todd Montessori utilizes the philosophy, methods, and materials developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori Method emphasizes the development of all facets of a child’s personality - intellectual, social, emotional, and physical. The scientifically prepared environments contain a wide variety of materials from which the child may choose appropriate learning tools. The Montessori teacher acts as a mentor and guide to encourage individual exploration, discovery, practice, and success. Awareness of, and concern for, the welfare of the group is an integral part of our program. It is important for children to know their role in the scheme of life, therefore the Montessori curriculum focuses on interdependence of all things. Freedom with responsibility is basic to Montessori’s thinking.
