South Jordan Montessori is based on the philosophy that children flourish with child directed activities, assisted by teachers and the opportunity to work at their own pace. Dr. Montessori recognized that children have sensitive periods to absorb information. This is the time to fill their experiences with rich language and manipulative lessons. The brain is connected to the work of the hands.

There are five distinct areas that allow the child to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually, developing his character as well as his academic interests.
