Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, designed a system of education centered around the needs of each individual child. All of her methods and ideas are based on an ongoing process of close observation and direction. This method of education goes beyond the acquisition of basic skills and knowledge. While students are encouraged to become thoughtful readers, clear writers, skillful problem solvers and logical thinkers, they are also encouraged to fully develop their social, spiritual and moral potentials. Unlike most other educational models, the Montessori Method recognizes the importance of character development and spirituality in human growth. In this way, the educational experience becomes a journey of self-awareness as each individual finds his or her unique place in the world. 

At Providence, our staff is trained in the Montessori philosophy and method. They are dedicated to help each child reach his or her fullest potential. Providence offers a true sense of community: committed parents and staff along with the students create a truly unique learning experience.
