Our Philosophy

Lighthouse Montessori is dedicated to and rooted in the philosophy and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori. Through her life work as a physician and anthropologist, she established many revolutionary educational premises.

Lighthouse Montessori School's method is based on respect of the individual child and his/her individual timetable for growth and development. Each day we strive to:

  1. Awaken a love of learning, a passion for knowledge, and a joy of creativity in each student.
  2. Provide a peaceful, secure, prepared environment where children long to be.
  3. Help children discover their abilities, find their independence and develop their self confidence.
  4. Foster a strong sense of self, respect for others and an ability to work as part of a group.
  5. Develop a strong academic foundation and a repertoire of life skills in each of our students.
  6. Create and provide programs which will heighten a child's development through the processes of exploration and discovery with concrete materials, while nurturing a natural curiosity and a love of learning.
  7. Provide a reliable source of care, support, information and training for families.

To let the child do as he likes when he has not yet developed any powers of control is to betray the idea of freedom.
