The Purpose

Why Montessori? Does a Montessori education really prepare children for the real world? The answer is “Yes!” The Method has proven to be effective for over 90 years in tens of thousands of Montessori Schools around the world. At Santa Monica Montessori School, our primary goal is to foster independence in each child, develop initiative, encourage the development of a creative mind, develop inner discipline and most importantly, a lifetime love of learning.
