General School Mission

"Dr. Montessori revolutionized education with her dynamic theories, which are the basis for Fountainhead's educational philosophy. Each child is an individual accorded the respect due to every person. At the same time, children are not miniature adults; instead they think and learn in ways unique to their special time in life. Every child is nurtured physically, psychologically, cognitively, and spiritually. Fountainhead Montessori provides an environment for children to literally create themselves through purposeful activity. Children through the age of six experience and learn through all of their senses. Everything is hands-on. When activity is purposeful, developmentally appropriate, and, above all, fun, learning is joyful.
