General School Mission

"The Woodcreek Montessori School is based on the philosophies of Maria Montessori.
The Montessori Method focuses on allowing a child to learn in a hands-on environment, that is custom-made to each child's individual educational needs.
The children work with materials that are self-contained and placed on shelves for easy accessibility. Every month we focus on several different educational themes to enhance the learning process, so that the children are exposed to as many concepts as possible.
