Welcome to Montessori Academy of Anaheim
A Place to Shine
Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and educator, in the early 20th century. The Montessori method is based on the observation and understanding of how children learn naturally. It is a child-centered approach that emphasizes hands-on learning, self-directed exploration, and discovery.
In Montessori classrooms, children are free to move about, choose their own activities, and work at their own pace. The classroom environment is carefully prepared to promote independence, concentration, and coordination, and is filled with educational materials that are designed to be aesthetically pleasing and engaging to children.
The Montessori method aims to foster the development of the whole child - physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively - and encourages the development of critical thinking skills, creativity, and a love of learning. The ultimate goal of Montessori education is to prepare children to be independent, responsible, and confident individuals who can thrive in their communities and in the world.
Unique and Valuable
Our mission at Montessori Academy of Anaheim is to empower young children through an authentic Montessori education by fostering their natural curiosity, creativity, and independent learning abilities. We aim to create a supportive, inclusive, and nurturing environment that allows each child to reach their full potential and become confident, self-directed learners who are prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century. By respecting each child's unique pace and learning style, we cultivate their love of knowledge and encourage them to develop a lifelong passion for learning.
