What is Montessori?

Dr Montessori developed her educational method through her teaching and observations of children from a huge variety of backgrounds. She discovered that, given freedom to explore in an environment designed to meet their needs, children developed confidence and made thoughtful choices. They learned the social mores and graces of their place and time, formed a caring community and explored their world with enthusiasm and joy. With encouragement, and time to develop at their own pace, children’s fascination for their world was invariably strengthened and developed.

At Edinburgh Montessori Arts School we ensure positive, creative, secure beginnings for all children.
