Vision and Mission
O.B. Montessori Center (OBMC) adheres faithfully to the educational method of the great Dr. Maria Montessori. In her method the center of education is Man, whose mental growth and development begins at birth. Guided by his “inner teacher”, he can construct himself into the New Man.
OBMC envisions this New Man as a citizen of the world, “able to exercise in freedom a self- disciplined will and judgment, unperverted by prejudice and undistorted by fear.” He “will no longer be the victim of events but, thanks to his clarity of vision, will become able to direct and to mold the future of mankind” as leaders of the nation and the world.
The mission of OBMC is to transform all students into self-developing individuals by establishing the right relationship between the child and the adult; providing them with a prepared environment suitable for learning and creativity; equipping them with the skills necessary to become independent yet disciplined, productive yet embodying the Montessori spirit of excellence; and developing in them a heart for others, committed to the ideals of peace, social justice, and the cause of the child, who is the future of mankind.
