From the Director:
The classroom teacher at Far Horizons is keenly aware of the specific needs of each child. She observes the child as he works and quietly offers guidance, as needed, along the way. When the child masters one skill, she introduces a new activity or material with the next appropriate challenge. The teacher works in collaboration with the child helping him build self confidence and self-esteem as he learns to work and think for himself through independent discovery. The specially trained teacher in a Montessori classroom is the essential link between the child and our carefully prepared environment. Her individualized lessons facilitate each child's exploration and encourage independence.
