The Montessori Method of Education is a scientifically-based and world-renowned educational approach that enables children to achieve their full inherent potential: Physically, socially, emotionally and academically. Montessori education is individualized and adapts to the needs and readiness of each child, resulting in a peaceful and rewarding experience that ultimately elicits the love for learning. Multi-aged classrooms develop a strong sense of responsibility, respect and leadership for our environments. Montessori children grow into happy, self-motivated beings, whose natural self-confidence and mastery of the concepts yields personal and academic excellence.
Sapientia Montessori is open year-round. Applications and admissions are accepted throughout the year, based on space availability and upon the completion of a tour.
