"Hands-On Montessori is a co-op community of children, families, and teachers dedicated to inspiring and nurturing the development of each student's independence, self-confidence, self-respect, and creativity enabling each child to reach his/her full potential as a global citizen and lifelong learner. Hands-On Montessori facilitates this development by embracing the philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori in harmony with other developmentally appropriate, innovative teaching practices.
We encourage students to become engaged and excited with their schoolwork through active learning. Students are encouraged to pursue studies in all areas of their spontaneous personal interest using hands-on “experiential” learning through concrete manipulative learning materials, experimental discovery, and group experiences. The Hands-On Montessori School is committed to both high standards of individual academic achievement while at the same time respecting the child’s human dignity and well being.
