About Us

Maria Montessori, the first woman in Italy to become a physician, was a leader in the field of early education. She believed children learn best when allowed to use a hands-on approach. Rather than only listening to instructions, Dr. Montessori believed children must also touch, see and explore.

Dr. Montessori also discovered children have an inherent drive for independence and exceptional powers of concentration. She observed young children unconsciously absorb their environment.

From her observation and beliefs, she developed educational materials and methods to help each child reach his or her potential in all areas of life.

The Long Island Montessori School philosophy centers on a multi-age classroom that encourages community and social development. This allows children at various stages of development to learn from each other.

At Long Island Montessori School, children spend each work period moving freely from one activity to another, guided by a trained teacher. They are taught how to work and play harmoniously with others, developing social skills. Each step in their Montessori education reinforces a positive attitude, self-motivation, confidence, and a love of learning.

A student learns at his or her own pace, naturally and spontaneously. Children learn how to care for themselves and their environment. Excellent work habits, a sense of order, and respect for property are the intended results of The Long Island Montessori School.
