Montessori Academy of Naples is dedicated to the philosophy and educational method developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. Our purpose is to guide each child in a thoughtfully prepared environment to become an independent thinker, resourceful problem solver, and a positive contributing member in our society by focusing on the development of the whole child.
THE MULTI-AGE CLASSROOM
Classes with 3-year age spans facilitate mentorship among the students and encourage leadership development.
A hallmark of Montessori is specially designed materials that provide a hands-on approach to learning.
Students are given agency to self-select work, leading to intrinsic motivation and sustained attention.
UNINTERRUPTED WORK PERIODS
An extended period of “free choice” enables students to work at their own pace and without interruption.
A properly credentialed Montessori teacher has the skills and expertise to implement high-fidelity Montessori.
