General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Montessori takes a "Whole Child" approach to learning. The school's primary goal is to have each child reach his/her full potential in all areas of life. Classroom activities are designed to promote the development of social skills, emotional growth, and physical coordination as well as academic preparation. Under the direction of specially trained teachers, the holistic curriculum allows each child to experience the joy of learning. The idea is to focus on the process of learning rather than on the product and to ensure the development of self-esteem. Children create their knowledge through their experiences with the materials in the classroom."
