"The purpose of the Pioneer Valley Montessori School is to provide quality Montessori education in accordance with the standards and philosophies of the American Montessori Society. Our goals are to cultivate each child's natural desire to learn, acquire and master skills, learn responsibility and cooperation and foster strong positive feelings about oneself and others. Our curriculum is designed to encourage self-motivation and concentration and offers children an opportunity to develop at their own pace through a balance of intellectual stimulation, social interaction, movement and creativity. The board and management of the school ensure that there is Montessori trained professional staff available as well as adequate teaching materials and supplies to carry out the basic purpose."
