Day in the Life

General School Mission

It is the philosophy of The Blue Hill Montessori School that early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploration and discovery. Preschool children are creative and receptive; the staff strives to nurture and encourage these qualities in the students. Our purpose is to provide a child-centered, loving, and enriching Montessori environment. In this environment, children develop a life-long love of learning and gain independence, self-discipline and the necessary skills to move into the next phase of learning with confidence and enthusiasm. With a seasoned staff of experienced and educated professionals, children learn with nurturing guidance and love.
