From the Director:

The young child internalizes concepts through movement, repetition, the use of their senses and the manipulation of concrete objects. We provide a rich environment of well-structured tasks in a broad and far reaching curriculum. The children are permitted freedom of choice within a stimulating environment with clearly defined limits. They work individually and in small and large groups. They become absorbed by their chosen tasks and experience a deep, inner satisfaction. They develop a positive attitude and excellent foundation for creative learning.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Montessori is a philosophy and method of education which emphasized the potential of the young child and which develops this potential by utilizing special teaching materials. Montessori materials help the child to understand what he learns by associating abstract concepts with concrete sensorial experiences.
