Welcome to Billings Montessori! Please call for our next available opening! Located in Billings, MT, we offer a comprehensive educational approach on the observation of children's needs in a variety of cultures all around the world. Beginning her work almost a century ago, Dr. Maria Montessori developed this educational approach based on her understanding of children's natural learning tendencies as they unfold in prepared environments for multi-age groups. Our services include: Natural learning Discovery with materials Concentration cultivation - Education begins with exercises of practical living, developing musculuar coordination, powers of observation, concentration, and self-confidence. The Montessori environment contains specially designed, manipulative materials for development that invite children to engage in learning activities of their own individual choice. Under the guidance of a trained teacher, children in a Montessori classroom learn by making discoveries with the materials, cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning. Today, Montessori schools are found worldwide. The Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), founded by Maria Montessori in 1929, maintains Montessori educational principles and disseminates Montessori education throughout the world.
