Not in the service of any political or social creed should the teacher work, but in the service of the complete human being, able to exercise in freedom a self-disciplined will and judgement, unperverted by prejudice and undistorted by fear.

—Maria Montesorri

Why Montessori?

The list of famous people who had their start as Montessori students is indeed intriguing, but what is of the utmost importance is that the most innovative thinkers of our age, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of Google and Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon.com, state unequivocally that they owe their whole way of thinking to their Montessori roots. No one can dispute their successes due to their ability to look at situations from a fresh and different prospective.
