Montessori is designed to help children with their task of inner construction as they grow from childhood to maturity. It succeeds because it draws its principles from the natural development of the child. The inherent flexibility allows the method to adapt to the needs of the individual regardless of the level of ability, learning style, or social maturity. Montessori classrooms provide a prepared environment where children are free to respond to their natural drive to work and learn. The children’s inherent love of learning is encouraged by giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous, meaningful activities under the guidance of a trained adult. Through their work, the children develop concentration, motivation, persistence, and discipline. Within this framework of order, the children progress at their own pace and rhythm, according to their individual capabilities during the crucial years of development.
The Montessori Dieppe mission is to create a nurturing, stimulating and safe environment guided by the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori which encourages students to work toward excellence in everything they do. We strive to instill in each child a love of learning within a well-prepared, respectful, loving and inspiring classroom setting.
