The Montessori Method

The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr. Montessori’s method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world.

It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, cognitive. Discover how parents describe the Montessori experience:

Anti-Discrimination Policy

Dr. Maria Montessori said, “The problem for us does not lie in the political action to save a nation or another; our efforts must be devoted, rather, to solving a psychological problem involving all [human]-kind, and as a consequence acquiring a clear conception of the kind of morality necessary to defend humanity as a whole.” (Education and Peace, 1972)

On this premise and other teachings of Dr. Montessori, Walnut Farm Montessori School is committed to maintaining an environment that is free of any type of discrimination, and where students, staff and everyone associated with the school is treated with dignity and respect.  Further, WFMS embraces the American Montessori Society’s stance on equity and inclusion.  The AMS website states, “A commitment to basic human rights such as freedom, dignity, safety, equitable treatment, and a standard of living adequate for health and well-being drive the Montessori commitment to education for peace and social justice.”  

Walnut Farm Montessori School’s strict prohibition against discrimination includes, but is not limited to, discrimination based upon a person’s race, creed, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, pregnancy, gender identity or expression, age, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, or family status.

This anti-discrimination policy applies to, but is not limited to all educational opportunities, classroom practices, employment practices, compensation, training, hiring, advancement, promotion, discipline, discharge and the selection of vendors, contractors and consultants who do business with the school.
