Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

From the Director:

individualized learning

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Each child is taught as an individual, not a "number". We strive to teach the "whole child" through instruction in all academic areas as well environmental lessons and social interaction throughout the day.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Abbreviated schedule at start of school year

Handling Separation: From the Director

Each child separates from his or her parents differently, so each case is handled differently. We have secret observation rooms that parents are allowed to be in anytime. This allows the parents to be reassured that their child has adjusted to the classroom. Most of the time, the separation is more difficult on the adult than the child.
