Videos on the Montessori Philosophy

This short video provides an excellent perspective provided by one parent on the benefits of a Montessori education. It addresses, for the most part, Montessori education through grade 6. The Montessori secondary program (grades 7–12), although still conducted according to the same methodology, expands beyond the elementary to accommodate the needs of the adolescent.

Why wait for Superman? The Madmen are pleased to announce a new Montessori video, by one of its members.

It is important to recognize the individualized nature of a Montessori education. Our classes are student-centered, not teacher-centered. Each student progresses at his own pace and is encouraged to grow in knowledge and ability beyond his traditional grade level whenever possible.

Montessori Philosophy

Montessori PhilosophyThe Montessori Philosophy encourages children to develop their observation skills through activities that use the five senses, kinetic movement, spatial refinement, small and gross motor skill coordination, and concrete knowledge that leads to later abstraction.
