The Montessori approach to education is designed to instill a love of learning in children which they will carry with them throughout their lives. Keeping curiosity and inquiry alive is central to the "natural learning" espoused by Maria Montessori and practiced at The Montessori School of Raleigh. This notion of lifelong learning is integrated into every grade-level experience at MSR and extends to the adult community through employee professional development and parent education.
On August 16, 2021, on the first day of Employee Prep Week at MSR, Lower Elementary Directress, Laura Sayles, "rallied the troops" with her opening "Inspiramus." In her own words...
My name is Laura Sayles and I am a directress in Lower Elementary, or “LE." For those of you who don’t know yet, LE includes first, second, and third grade. Super fun age range! Fun fact about LE, Maria Montessori actually coined it, “The Age of Accidental Rudeness,” because they are hyper aware of everyone around them, and truly do just speak their minds without a filter.
In the words of Maria Montessori, "Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child open up himself to life."
At The Montessori School of Raleigh (MSR), faculty and staff have been preparing for the new school year, designing opportunities for their students to open themselves up to life and learning.

Maria Montessori had a deep respect for the natural world. She believed the outdoor environment was an extension of the indoor classroom as it provides endless opportunities for experiential learning. That’s why at The Montessori School of Raleigh (MSR), students at all grade levels learn from nature every day through access to outdoor spaces as well as natural elements in their indoor spaces – like plants and small animals. In the Middle and Upper Schools, students engage in a land and livestock program that offers even more opportunities for students to access and learn from the natural world around them.
