What is the Montessori method of teaching?

The Montessori method of teaching is one that focuses on self-directed activities, collaborative play and hands-on learning. When a child attends a Montessori school, they are given the opportunity to make creative choices in their learning, with the guidance of a highly qualified teacher. 


Through the Montessori method of teaching teachers also emphasize working in groups as much as they do working individually so that children can explore and discover the knowledge of the world around them. 


The Montessori philosophy coupled with our inquiry-based approach frames our learning environment. Our students are free to learn at their own pace and explore avenues that interest and inspire them individually. A guided approach to mastery of core concepts and the promotion of core values: independence, citizenship, integrity and accountability, differentiate the Alder Ridge learning experience.


Alder Ridge Academy offers a 21st century educational experience for the 21st century child. Our innovative learning experiences are founded in the established Montessori philosophy. We offer a student-led, self-paced education that holistically supports all aspects of development, nurturing each child’s natural desire for knowledge, understanding and respect. Alder Ridge is a learning community, where encouragement and guidance are coupled with the children’s natural inquisition to propel them to reach for the stars.
