Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Montessori classrooms provide a prepared environment where children are free to respond to their natural curiosity and desire to learn and grow.
The children's inherent love of learning is encouraged by giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous meaningful activities under the guidance of a trained Montessori teacher and assistant.
Through their work, the children develop concentration, motivation, persistence, and discipline. Within the framework of order, the children progress at their own pace and rhythm, according to their individual capabilities, during the crucial years of development.
