Our Community. Our Mission.
Montessori Childrenâ€™s Community was founded out of profound respect for children and a devotion to educating children for a peaceful world. Our Community is committed to Montessoriâ€™s
approach to education and operates on the principle of freedom within limits, respect for oneâ€™s self, for others and for the environment.
Our â€œWhole Childâ€ approach embraces each childâ€™s individual progress toward concentration, inner-discipline and self-confidence by allowing each child to reach their full potential at their own
pace and level.
Our environment is filled with beautiful, carefully chosen materials that progress developmentally from concrete expressions of concepts to more abstract representations. The materials in the classroom represent a three year curriculum of work and they invite the child to explore and encourage the child to be creative.
Montessori Childrenâ€™s Community admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
Our typical daily schedule is spent as follows:
A long block of time is spent on individual or group work. There are periods of outdoor play where children have an opportunity to use their large motor skills. Snack time takes place during the morning work period and after the rest period. Large group activities may include, but not limited to, music, singing, story- telling, cultural
presentations, and birthday celebrations.
