What is Montessori?

Montessori Education focuses on the individual needs of each student by providing them with a scientifically designed curriculum with individualized instruction. Children learn through hands-on activities and they are allowed freedom of choice in their learning. Students are taught to move purposefully and freely throughout the learning environment. This style of learning helps foster independence and confidence in students and utilizes their unique talents, skills, and interests to propel their learning. Creating a dynamic learning environment for active engagement nurtures a lifelong love of learning.

“Topsail Montessori has truly become our second family. We enrolled our daughter in the summer program to get a feel for Montessori learning. We loved the program so much we decided to enroll for the whole school year. This school is beautiful inside and out. The children are deeply respected by the staff. If you are looking for a close-knit school that encourages curiosity, independence, and freedom this is your place!”
