At Holliday, the Montessori philosophy allows our educators to promote hands-on learning through exploration and discovery. Students are given the keys to the world! They develop a life-long love of learning.
Montessori works in every setting for the success of each child. It helps caregivers develop children who are morally, emotionally, and behaviorally prepared for the real world. Our educators help children follow their interests and passions to develop strong skills in academics, leaderships, self-discipline, responsibility, independence, and initiative. The child’s education is hands-on, self-paced, collaborative, and joyful – everything that’s needed to create a lifelong learner and doer.
Freedom to learn at your pace
Children have freedom to choose their work throughout the day during an uninterrupted three-hour work cycle and a pm two-hour work cycle. Students choose work from various areas of the classroom: practical life, sensorial, math, language and culture. Science is also a very important component of children’s work in the Montessori environment. The work within the Montessori classroom is authentic and purposeful – the works are developmentally appropriate and foster independence.
