Guided by the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori, our mission at Rocklin Montessori is to provide an authentic Montessori experience in a safe, caring and beautifully prepared classroom environment. Our child-centered, enriched environment facilitates independent and collaborative learning and exploration so that children may experience of joy of self-directed, spontaneous learning.
Our goal is to educate the whole individual through the Montessori approach which addresses the intellectual, emotional, social and physical needs of each child, encouraging the child’s curiosity and independent thinking to foster self-discipline and a life-long love of learning. And so we discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being. It is not acquired by listening to words, but in virtue of experiences in which the child acts on his environment. The teacher`s task is not to talk, but to prepare and arrange a series of motives for cultural activity in a special environment made for the child.
