From the Director:
The Montessori method allows children to learn freely in such areas as practical life, sensory development, language and mathematical skills, as well as cultural and geographic study. Our core studies also encourage learning about geometry, environmental studies, language arts, and physical sciences.
Our teachers observe and interact with the children throughout the day. Through this careful observation, the teachers can 'follow the child' and prepare an individualized program that is child led and appeals to the child's needs at that moment in time. Each concrete activity lays the foundation for more abstract concepts. The Montessori materials are specifically designed to support the development of fine motor skills, , as well as critical thinking skills and self-discipline.
"Our mission is to develop the whole child, including critical thinking skills, independence, social competency, and creativity through Montessori methods and exposure to the fine arts.
