Schools: Montessori & Waldorf Education

“Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment” (Maria Montessori). Montessori and Waldorf methods focus on holistic education, collaboration, and hands-on, self-directed learning.
