It all began over 30 years ago with two newlyweds who were passionate about education. Ms. Rita, an eminent professional educator, and Mr. Hersh, a natural teacher and entrepreneur, created together a child care education program that does not focus on exactness, but rather the concept of self-inspired learning. Thus, was created a system where a child is not taught directly, but given the skills to learn. They believed that you have to take the child along with you, by enjoying the learning process and having the institution adjust to the needs of the child, rather than the other way around. Their experience has helped them shape a vision that is extraordinary and unique.
Maria Montessori lived in the 19th century, therefore she could not depict the children of today and their needs. These visionaries took the foundation of Montessori and created a system of learning that is not traditional but modified and expanded. They complimented her philosophy, creating a hands-on learning experience, which increased the attention span and concentration of each learner. It also cultivated a global outlook, a spirit of inquiry and concern for man and environment. The vision was to create a "life" school, in which dreams are fulfilled; a natural quest. They instilled the idea that the educators within the school also need a quest; that anything which is good should be passed onto the next generation. Children could expand their horizons, based upon a deep philosophy, conviction, love for lifelong-learning, and a quest for excellence.
With each child we send out our door, after their time here is finished. We can rest assured that we are one-step closer to making this world a better place.
