Our mission is to provide education based on truth and correct principles in an environment of peace and security. We follow the methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. Our method is based on respect of the individual child and his/her individual timetable for growth and development. We seek to build "not only good mathematicians, proficient linguists, profound scientist, or brilliant literary lights, but also honest men [and women] with virtue, temperance, and brotherly love. We seek to make men and women who prize truth, justice, wisdom, benevolence, and self-control as the choicest acquisitions of a successful life." (quote taken from Treasures of Life, Claire Middlemiss (1962))
To young children, there is something very special about doing things that adults find ordinary. Practical life exercises such as pouring and spooning, washing dishes or polishing shoes completely absorb them. Children are taught how to do each of the learning activities and then are allowed the freedom to choose what they would like to work on and how long the work on it.
