Famous Montessorian Testimonials 

“I do not believe there is a method better than Montessori for making children sensitive to the beauties of the world and awakening their curiosity regarding the secrets of life.” 
— Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Author
 

“Montessori taught me the joy of discovery... It showed you can become interested in pretty complex theories, like Pythagorean theory, say, by playing with blocks. It’s all about learning on your terms, rather than a teacher explaining stuff to you. SimCity comes right out of Montessori — if you give people this model for building cities, they will abstract from it principles of urban design.” 
— Will Wright, Computer Game Designer and Original Designer of The Sims
 

“[When asked by Barbara Walters what he credits his success to] We both went to Montessori schools and I think it was all part of that training... being self-motivated, questioning what’s going on in the world and doing things a little bit differently.”
— Larry Page, Google co-founder
 

“Structure is an absolutely important part of the creative life, and Emily [Ma] got this from her Montessori experience.”
— Yo Yo Ma, World-Renowned Cellist and Montessori parent
