Holly Brook Montessori

Mission and Philosophy

example-picAt Montessori School of Cedar Lane, Holly Brook Montessori and Hunter Mill Montessori, learning is based on the principles of education discovered and promoted by Dr. Maria Montessori. Dr. Montessori was the first to discover and acknowledge the need for early education. Her discoveries have been verified by current educational research as well as over 100 years of successful implementation in schools around the world.

Dr. Montessori was the first educator to observe how effortlessly a child absorbs from his environment from birth to age seven. Children at this age are acutely sensitive to the world around them. Impressions formed during this time have a lasting effect upon the child’s attitude toward learning and life itself. Dr. Montessori realized that it is necessary during this period for the child to find in his environment the tools to satisfy and stimulate his natural intellectual development.

Our three schools provide the “prepared environment” utilizing the discoveries and methods of Dr. Montessori to help the child develop more fully the potential within him. Each school provides a program especially suited to the needs of the child and offers additional individual attention to the whole development of the child.
