About us.

We are a group of people who resonate with the philosophy of Montessori (see excerpt by Rambusch below). By recognizing the needs and inclinations of children, we believe that the child can be aided to bring out the best of himself, naturally. We aim to share and spread this message of love and respect for all children in order to assist in their self-construction and eventually be the adult-contributor to society he is meant to be.


“Children learn, with or without teachers. They absorb knowledge from whatever environment they are in. The type of environment conducive to children’s learning depends largely on adults. Adults have always professed to love children. Less often have they professed a need to respect them. Many are the adults who believe that the role of the child is to respect the adult and not the reverse. Maria Montessori believed that any effective education of the child must necessarily involve a modification of the adult. It is the transformation of the adult that is the underlying theme of the Montessori Teacher Training Program. What makes a Montessorian? A Montessorian is compounded of observer, exemplar, and protector of the child’s right to learn.”

Rambusch, Nancy McCormick
