Morning Star Montessori Center
Philosophy & Goals
MSMC adheres to the unique educational philosophy set out a century ago by Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori philosophy aims to develop the child’s innate desire to learn by using a child’s natural curiosity and love of knowledge. To educate the whole child Dr. Montessori felt the child must have the freedom to learn at his or her own pace and in an individualized manner. She believed that children ages 0 to 6 are in the most important period of their lives. During these years, children's environment will have a great impact on developing and stimulating their intelligence to the maximum. She developed the "prepared environment" (an environment prepared with didactic equipment), which possesses a certain order and disposes the child to develop at his or her own capabilities in a non-competitive atmosphere.
Our Mission & Goal
MSMC is dedicated to the development of all children regardless of age, gender, race, social or cultural background and ability. We believe that each child is unique, special, and valuable. We provide each child a safe, loving and learning environment where he or she can develop to his or her own potential in terms of physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social and creative growth. Our goal is to cultivate children’s natural desire to learn, for them to become a lover of work and intellectual work where they have spontaneously chosen the activity and have carried it out with profound joy.
