Our how and why
“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavour always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence” ~ Maria Montessori
Montessori Little Birds is a school with a guiding mission: to ensure our pupils thrive.
