"At Montview we celebrate the uniqueness of each child. We acknowledge that each child develops at an individual pace and in unique directions.
We are committed to the development of a child's self esteem through child-directed cooperative play. We believe that play is a child's work and that all learning is experiential. Children learn by doing. Montview provides a warm, loving, creative and stimulating environment in which children can interact with materials and with each other. Children choose their own activities with a focus on process rather than product. Children are free to wonder, explore, create, make mistakes, question and repeat experiences from which they can make their own conclusions.
We value racial and socio-economic diversity. We celebrate the different kinds of families in our school and are committed to appreciating the importance of family in the life of each child.
As a cooperative community, Montview fosters the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development of our children.
