Our Classroom

In the classroom, the Montessori teacher prepares an environment
which allows the children to come into contact with the qualities and
facts of the world as presented through the Montessori materials.

Our Mission

At the Academy, children work at their own pace in a
non-competitive atmosphere and are free to engage in independent
"spontaneous activity" and to experience success.



Our Program

The Montessori approach takes full advantage of sensitive periods 
of learning by providing an attractively and carefully prepared
environment furnished with a series of self-teaching materials to
stimulate each child's curiosity and help her acquire skills.

Our Staff

The staff at the Montessori Academy of Cape Cod has a rich and diverse background. Collectively they have taught in the southern and northeastern United States, Europe, and China.

More on the Montessori Method

Developmental Theory

The metamorphoses of children, from birth to adulthood, occur through a series of developmental periods. The focus of Montessori education continually changes in scope and manner to meet the child's changing need and interests.

Maria Montessori

Dr. Maria Montessori, the first woman to graduate from the University of Rome College of Physicians and Surgeons, began her work with children as a physician. In later years, she became an educator and anthropologist.



Peaceful Purpose

The great significance and real beauty of our school lies in the children that will go forward and will, by the virtue of who they are, help create a lasting harmony and peace for our world.
