Philosophy

GMA-Page_BoyBlock

The mission of Global Montessori Academy is to provide an authentic Montessori education for young children, with a dedication to development of the whole person: intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially.

GMA is a school, not a daycare. We are dedicated to the Montessori philosophy that “A child’s work is to create the person he will become.” We view our work as helping our students become fully educated, self-aware members of society.

Our classrooms, in the “Freedom within the limits” tradition of Montessori, provide a safe space where children can develop a sense of order and self-discipline, while empowering their natural desire to learn.

Montessori education has been used effectively with all types of students, including the cognitively and physically impaired, talented, and gifted.

GMA Embraces Diversity

Global Montessori Academy embraces diversity on all levels. Diversity is encompassed as part of the philosophy of our school, as continually represented by our children, staff and administration. We do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, nationality, ethnic origin, sexual orientation or religion in admissions or any of our educational policies or school-administered programs.

We believe each family brings a unique background and perspective on our world which allows us to foster an inclusive community for our students from the very beginning of their educational journey.
