Montessori Principles

A pioneer of progressive education, Dr. Maria Montessori believed in the power of the child’s innate talent and curiosity and stressed the importance of letting them follow their interests.

Inly’s Montessori+ curriculum is centered around the traditional principles set out by Dr. Montessori:

  • Education for the whole child to support intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development.
  • Multi-age classrooms that provide a collaborative learning environment and promote peer-to peer learning.
  • Respect for the child’s capacity to make decisions and be independent.
  • A prepared environment where everything has a purpose and a place guides the development of logical thought processes.
  • A structure that allows freedom of movement within the classroom and the ability for students to choose and master their own work.
  • A curriculum that harnesses each student’s interests and is designed to best respond to their abilities and needs.
