The Montessori Approach to Early Childhood Education

The Falls Church Montessori school is a contemporary provider of Montessori early childhood education. The Montessori system itself, was created more than 100 years ago by Italian physician and educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. The system stresses independence, freedom within limits, and an inherent respect for a child’s natural physical and social development.

Specific characteristics of the Montessori system include:

  • Mixed age classrooms
  • Students choose from a host of instructional lessons and materials, within the prepared classroom environment
  • Uninterrupted blocks of work time
  • Students learn through hands-on work, with specialized materials and lessons
  • Unique Montessori educational materials and methods
  • Freedom of movement within the classroom
  • Trained Montessori professionals

In addition, Falls Church Montessori implements a curriculum and approach to early childhood education, which goes beyond the core academics of lesson time. Students are taught and guided to be responsible, independent, caring, and more generally mature. This facet of our approach is extremely unique. Having well rounded student development, is a goal we continually strive for- and achieve !
