General School Mission

"To provide an environment to meet the individual needs of young children guided by teachers trained in the Montessori philosophy. This philosophy acknowledges that education must be a help to each individual child so that he/she may develop to his /her highest potential.

We are dedicated to the total development of the constantly growing child. Our Montessori classroom environments provide varying degrees of challenge from which children choose, with guidance, work according to their level of development.

We strive to instill excitement and enthusiasm for learning in every child and to provide a caring, nurturing community in which children excel and develop a sense of self - esteem in their achievements.

Self motivation is instrinsic in young children and it is the only valid impulse to learning. \"In the earliest years -from birth to 6- a child absorbs from his environment the qualities that shape his like. Our emphasis must be on the acquisition of a positive self-concept, sane values, constructive attitudes and the refined skills and habits which make for a happy, contributing member of society. Education should be carefully directed toward development of sensitive, creative, compassionate, rational and efficient adults\".
