About Montessori

At Glen Abbey Montessori School, we fully embrace the Montessori philosophy and principles.  We do so, not only by providing our students with the requisite Montessori materials, but by creating an emotional, social, developmental and physical environment designed specifically to cater to the “absorbent mind”.

So, what exactly is the Montessori method?  Glen Abbey Montessori School’s motto “The key to independence, respect and confidence” captures the essence of Montessori, where the classroom environment and teachers are there to guide students in becoming independence, respecting themselves, others, and the environment, and learning self-confidence.

Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the Montessori philosophy and its principles.  We also have included a reading list to enhance your understanding on the Montessori method.
