Teaching Philosophy

A Montessori education is based on the belief that children are motivated by a natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge. It is designed to adapt to and fit a student's needs, interests, and development while still teaching core academic subjects and fundamental skills. Inly brings the Montessori philosophy to life by constantly developing new curriculum, learning materials, and experiences for its students. Inly's innovative approach strengthens critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, communication and global awareness—essential skills for the 21st century.

Mission Statement

Inly is a partnership of children, teachers, and families, dedicated to the joyful discovery of each child's innate capabilities and potential. Our community of learners inspires and nurtures children to become global citizens by embracing the philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori, in harmony with other compatible and innovative practices.
