Dr. Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator. She created an educational method that builds on the natural way that children learn. Her research showed that children experience sensitive periods. Utilizing Scientific-Method-based observations gained from her earlier work with young children, Maria designed learning materials and a classroom environment that fostered the children’s natural desire to learn. The teacher, child, and environment created a learning triangle, leading to the opening of the first Montessori in 1907. Now, there are more than 22.000 in 110 differents countries.

The Hudson Montessori school in Jersey City, New Jersey accepts children from 2 to 11 years old. Despite its geographic location in the United States, the school focuses on a global exploration of both tangible and intangible life-long skills. Each academic program is proposed for three age ranges, so that children can share experiences with each other, complementing their individual learning. The environment allows them to develop their social and leadership skills, by enabling a feeling of innovation and creativity. 

The environment in the classroom is quite unique: while the students are all occupied, the classroom maintains a quiet and peaceful atmosphere, where the teacher and the students seem to operate in a symbiotic and respected relationship. 

The Montessori's Program customization of learning materials allows children who are from other countries to rely on senses other than sound in order to communicate with one another, breaking down the language barriers and without inhibiting their learning.

 It can be a good way for your French kids to learn another language, and in a sequential way, become bilingual without feeling limited in their interactions with their peers. At Montessori, they don’t “learn" English, they listen, understand and are able to speak. While some of the Montessori schools in France offer bilingual programs, oftentimes in NYC, French is replaced by Spanish.
