What is a Montessori education? For more than a century now, the child-focused approach that Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, developed for educating children has been transforming schools around the globe.


As soon as you enter our classrooms, you know that something different is afoot. You will see children working independently and in groups, often with specially designed learning materials; deeply engaged in their work; and respectful of themselves and their surroundings.

The Montessori Method fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children and adolescents in all areas of their development—cognitive, emotional, social, and physical.

At Montessori Academy in the Oaks, we believe that an effective education doesn’t just come from memorizing or lecturing. MAITO’s programs, based on self-directed, non-competitive activities, help children develop good self-images and the confidence to face challenges and change with optimism.
