"Goals/Mission Statement : The Deerfield Montessori Schools are dedicated to children and the fulfillment of their most basic needs:
The need to know "I am a worthy person, a loveable person, a capable person".
The need for a stimulating and ordered environment.
The need for loving guidance to foster the growth of a free and open spirit.
The need to develop critical "life skills" such as decision making, thinking for oneself, creating, and getting along with others.
The need to view all experiences in a positive light.
Fulfillment of these needs leads to a happily integrated person who can successfully meet life's challenges and make a creative contribution to our society. The child is then truly master of his own destiny.
