Dr Maria Montessori and those continuing her work are usually following a very simple agenda: help children!
develops capabilities for independence and meaningful collaboration in society starting from where the individual is

is about respect for oneself, respect for others and respect for the environment
We think Montessori education should be accessible for all who want it.
