"If education is protection to life, you will realize that it is necessary that education accompany life during its whole course."

- Maria Montessori

What is Montessori?

The Montessori method enables children to achieve their full potential through segmented learning experiences.

MSC strives to develop the unique abilities of your child. We firmly believe that every child has a very absorbent mind that’s just waiting to be encouraged in the right direction. Our mission involves presenting methods and tools that will challenge our students academically while also preparing them for life’s many challenges that lie ahead.

In our mixed-aged classrooms, your children will discover dignity in meaningful work and the importance of caring for themselves and their classmates. We also maintain a very pro-diversity environment, where social and cultural exchanges constantly take place, enriching and expanding the learning experience.

How the Montessori Education Method Works

Based on the scientific insights of Dr. Maria Montessori, the physician, and educator responsible for conceiving the method, Montessori education works through unconventional yet highly effective pillars.
We have deep respect for your child’s individuality, which is why we make sure their education is implemented according to their particular set of skills. The Montessori method also focuses a lot on hands-on activities, where practical skills are consistently acquired through repetition and observation.

Teachers act largely as guides and observers, rather than objectors, of your kid’s actions and reasoning. Independence and critical thinking will be cultivated from our first program onward. We believe the more input students have over their work, the more motivated they are, and the more ownership they take of their education.

Freedom of movement and choice is likewise emphasized in Montessori classrooms. Children in our Lower Elementary program can already eat a snack, get a drink, sit, get up, or lie down – all at will. The unpredictable nature of life is not combated, but rather embraced and worked with.

Classes take place using special educational materials, in classrooms constructed according to the needs of the children in that specific program. Some of our classes also happen outdoors on our campus, reinforcing the importance of a healthy relationship with nature while expanding the boundaries of the traditional classroom.
