Our Educational Philosophy

Our school’s educational philosophy is expressed in Dr. Maria Montessori’s thought and writing: “The child is at the center of the school, learning and working in a framework of freedom within structure, love and limits.”
From a Jewish perspective, our educational philosophy is reflected in The Book of Proverbs: “Educate the youngster according to his/her path.” Within these parameters, the Montessori educational experience in our school is anchored in the vision that all children are blessed with an absorbent mind ready to be awakened in the pursuit of knowledge, life skills, and character development.
