Learn how you can help foster independence in your child.

Dr. Montessori understood that children are capable of doing far more than adults allow them to do.

To build independence, children need:

  • A sense of self
  • Self-mastery/self-discipline
  • A sense of responsibility
  • Motivation

In a Montessori environment, children are empowered to do for themselves at age appropriate levels. The classrooms are designed so that as children get older, they are given more responsibility and more independence to manage their learning.
