Welcome Sterling Parents!
For more than 100 years, Maria Montessori’s child-centered, scientific approach has been producing outstanding educational outcomes for families around the world. Contemporary research has repeatedly validated Dr. Montessori’s brilliant insights and carefully designed methods and materials.
