General School Mission

"Our school's philosophy embodies a program of self-discovery and self-exploration. The academically rich environment is designed to promote a child's growth and development -- cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically.

We believe in the Montessori philosophy of self-discovery and self-exploration. The Montessori environment is set up so that the child can choose activities that interest him/her. A classroom that is carefully planned and that can be modified to meet the child's needs makes teaching and learning much easier and more fun. Children are curious and they want to learn. Providing them with the opportunities and the tools to learn is the goal of Creekside Montessori. Children will be give the opportunity to learn through self-initiated and teacher-directed activities in small and large groups. Children learn by actively discovering concepts through experimentation, inquiry and exploratory play.
