About Firelands Montessori Academy

Within the child lies the fate of the future.
Dr. Maria Montessori

What is the Montessori Education?

Montessori is a philosophy of human development and education that believes the child learns best within a social environment, which supports each individual’s unique development.
Dr. Maria MontessoriDr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) based her philosophy on her scientific observations of young children’s behavior.  Maria Montessori was the first woman physician to graduate from the University of Rome, and the phenomenal results of her work with children won her a Nobel Prize nomination and worldwide acclaim for her methods. Currently, Montessori schools flourish around the world, in public, parochial and independent school settings.

The Montessori method has been successfully developing the intellectual, physical, creative, emotional and social skills of children since the turn of the century. Under the close guidance of Montessori-trained teachers, children gain self-confidence, responsibility, independence and inner discipline in a trusting and non-competitive atmosphere.

Working together at Firelands Montessori AcademyMontessori programs, based on self-directed, non-competitive activities, help develop:

  • Positive self-image and the confidence to face challenges and change with optimism and adaptability
  • The ability to work independently and in groups
  • The capability to problem-solve, make choices and manage time well
  • The ability to exchange ideas and discuss work freely with others
