At Anami Montessori School, we share the vision Maria Montessori states as her own: to help children “equipped in their whole beings for the adventure of life, accustomed to the free exercise of their own will and judgment, illuminated by imagination and enthusiasm.”We help children understand the world—not only because it is infinitely interesting and learning is fun, but also to equip them to be able to make it a better place.
Anami Montessori assists in the construction of a fully integrated human being who will ultimately be able to happily and effectively contribute to society. This is accomplished through not only offering a solid academic foundation, but also emphasizing independence, self-direction, choice, collaboration, cooperation and peace.
As one of the most established Montessori schools in Charlotte (begun over 30 years ago), Anami Montessori School offers a comprehensive education from age three to twelve. In a non-sectarian setting, amid surroundings designed to support the principles that have made Montessori one of the most effective education systems in the world, our students develop the emotional, social, physical, and intellectual skills needed to live the lives they were born to live. Maria Montessori writes of this substantive process as “preparation for life.” Anami Montessori’s graduates are self-reliant, intellectually curious, and fully equipped for the adventure of life.
