Welcome to Cattoira Montessori

Cattoira Montessori School encourages independent, self-directed learning for life in a child-centered, international community valuing peace, respect for others and pride in individual difference. Cattoira Montessori School was founded in June 2002 to foster a love of learning and to educate children to be caring, socially responsible citizens of their community and world. The educational and supplemental care programs at CMS involve children from eighteen months through twelve years of age in three different programs: Toddler, Primary, and Elementary. CMS seeks to educate the whole child, applying the Montessori philosophy, in a family-oriented environment. The philosophy is based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) whose holistic vision of education focuses on the cognitive, social, emotional and physical needs of the child. For Dr. Montessori, and for CMS, education is preparation for life.

Montessori Glossary

In a Montessori classroom, every exercise, every method and every piece of equipment takes advantage of a child’s inherent desire to learn. Children are free to work in groups or on their own. They may sit at a table or move about the room.

Montessori vs Traditional

Research has shown that the best predictor of future success is a positive sense of self-esteem. Montessori programs, based on self-directed, non-competitive activities, help children develop strong self-images, the confidence to face challenges and change with optimism.

TODDLER

Given a loving, nurturing environment, toddlers learn faster than anyone. Dr. Montessori explains it as the unconscious absorbent mind. She meant they not only have the ability to absorb knowledge but also the capability to teach themselves.

PRIMARY

Children love to learn, and they are given every opportunity to explore the world around them. When you walk into a Montessori classroom, the first thing you will notice is that everyone is busy and interested in what they are doing.
