General School Mission

"The Montessori principles, the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill a child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate his/her own natural desire to learn. This is achieved through a carefully prepared environment and guidance from well-trained teachers.
The idea behind the Montessori approach is that children need both a stimulating, well prepared environment and positive adult guidance to maximize each child's full potential. The children have freedom of choice within the environment, allowing each child to fully pursue his/her own interests in all of the areas.

The Montessori materials isolate different concepts for the child to discover through his/her experiences with them. They have built-in control of error, allowing the child to discover his/her own mistakes and to minimize the need for correction by others, helping to build the child's self-esteem and feelings of success."
