“The Child has his own laws of development, and if we want to help him to grow, it is a question of following these, not of imposing ourselves upon them.” -Maria Montessori
Our Montessori classrooms are stimulating learning environments that are carefully prepared to invite exploration and discovery. In the Montessori classroom you will find children of mixed ages, working at their own individual level. They work independently or in small groups throughout the classroom, driven by their innate curiosity and love for learning.
Each classroom implements the Montessori philosophy and curriculum. The shelves are filled with materials that have been specifically designed to peak the interests and meet the needs of each child. Through exploration using concrete materials, the children develop a foundation that allows for a deeper understanding of abstract concepts.
Each classroom offers children the opportunities to explore concepts in language, mathematics, science, geography, art, sensorial, practical life, history and cultural studies. Daily lessons on grace & courtesy and healthy choices as well as weekly enrichment activities such as music, Sign Language, Spanish and yoga are all integral parts of our holistic approach to education which will give your child the foundation necessary for a lifetime of learning and success.
We have a caring, well-educated staff working with your children. Our Montessori certified teachers provide individualized instruction for each child by carefully observing each child’s needs and abilities and adapting the approach and curriculum accordingly. Providing each child with the materials and opportunities appropriate for their phase of development challenges each child and allows them to feel successful without feeling overwhelmed. Our dedicated teachers work hand in hand with parents to provide each child with the opportunity to reach their maximum potential.
“The teacher…must be like a flame which heartens all by its warmth enlivens and invites.”
