The Montessori Philosophy
martinez montessori academyThe Montessori Method is an approach to education which guides children through the "voyage of discovery." A vast array of specially designed educational equipment is introduced to the child by Montessori trained teachers in an atmosphere that promotes personal responsibility, freedom of choice, problem-solving skills, self-esteem, love, and respect. After becoming Italy's first woman physician in 1896, Dr. Montessori focused her attention on the emotional and intellectual needs of the young child. Her unique human insights, discovered through countless hours of observation, led to the application of principles and the development of theories known as the Montessori Method.

There are now thousands of Montessori private and public schools across the nation. The Montessori Method has been used successfully with children from birth through high school . Students from all socioeconomic levels, various cultural backgrounds, and diversified academic abilities have successfully attended Montessori programs. By design, classrooms include both younger and older children. In this way, younger children have the opportunity to learn from the older children. In turn, the older children develop leadership skills. As each child matures, the roles shift.

Learning to give and to receive from teachers and peers is a basic Montessori concept.

The underlying principle which forms the foundation of the Montessori Method is that education must follow the developmental and psychological needs of the child:

"The building of the character, the personality, is the most important single result of our whole work." - Maria Montessori

A prepared environment full of manipulative learning equipment is available which allows the child to progress at his own pace. Positive reinforcement, learning by doing, order, and the freedom to choose appropriately are principles that we advocate. Children learn self-confidence and responsibility through purposeful activity, observation, and discovery. From the earliest age, children are encouraged to become independent learners who can solve problems for themselves.

Our challenge is to prepare the educational background that will provide for the optimum development of human potential. Our vision is a new generation of adults with clarity of vision and competent creative minds who will have a positive impact on the future of the world.

All children enrolled at Martinez Montessori Academy are treated with love and respect, and they're provided with the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of activities. Our main objective is to provide a safe, clean, and loving environment in which each child will feel that he or she is loved, valued, and wanted.
