Over the years, Dr. Maria Montessor’s ideas have had a profound effect and growing influence on education. However, while individual elements find their way into traditional programs, a fully implemented Montessori model is so comprehensive in scope and sequence that it is quite distinct. Aidan represents such an academic model and offers it as a clearly optimum environment for learning, for preperation for the future, and for developing the necessary skills and dispositions for citizenship in a democratic society.
