Montessori Philosophy


The Montessori Method of education allows children to experience the joy of learning from an early age. Angie’s Children House is committed to providing a loving, safe, and secure environment in which the unfolding of your child’s potential can be nurtured. Each child’s efforts are encouraged and appreciated so that intellectual, moral, creative, physical, and social growth flourishes.

Maria Montessori was an Italian physician and educator. She was the first woman to earn a medical degree at the University of Rome, Italy, in 1896. Born in 1870, she developed her method of educating children over a 40-year period of working with and directly observing them. Dr. Montessori devoted her life to the education of children and was honored and respected throughout the world at the time of her death in 1952.

The Montessori Method is an approach to education that recognizes and attempts to develop the potential of the young child. This is accomplished by means of a carefully prepared environment, directed by Montessori teachers who have earned their Bachelor’s degrees and who have been trained in the Montessori method by the Association
Montessori International (AMI). The Montessori environment provides opportunities whereby the child may attain inner discipline and self-management. Children develop the capacity to take responsibility for themselves, while exploring all areas of learning at their own pace and according to their own interests.
