General School Mission

"To provide a safe and productive learning environment following Dr. Maria Montessori's method of teaching.
Individualized approach to learning with emphasis on self development.
Create a developmentally appropriate environment in which the child is free to choose the "work" that satisfies the needs of the child during critical developmental periods.
To provide the child the advantage of being a member of a mixed age group in which the older children model skill and behavior for the younger ones.
To strengthen emotional and social development by fostering in the child a sense of order and membership in a community and provide proper social skills to function within that community.
To develop a sense of responsibility and independence.
To act as a "tool" between parents and the child's learning.
To encourage a child's sense of honesty and fairness by rewarding productive behavior.
