The Montessori method of education is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development. This highly developmental method of learning is based on a discovery model, where students learn concepts from working with materials in blocks of time, rather than by direct instruction. At NDES, this method of learning is used as a 2 year program of mixed age students aged 3 - 4.
