General School Mission

"The mission of the Damariscotta Montessori School is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating Montessori environment which will help children develop within themselves the foundation for a lifetime of learning, thinking and living. We are a child centered community that honors individuality and encourages respect for one another and oneself. We believe that the deep commitment and dedication of our small community, which is made up of our school's children, parents and staff members, is vital in the fulfillment of this mission.

The main objective of Damariscotta Montessori School is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating
environment which will help children develop within themselves the foundation for a lifetime of learning,
thinking and living. We believe that the deep commitment and dedication of our small community, which is
made up of our school's children, parents and staff members, is vital in the fulfillment of this mission.
The specific goals for the children who attend our school are:
• To develop a sense of wonder and curiosity towards learning and the world around them.
• To develop a sense of high self-esteem.
• To develop each child's innate, ultimate potential through reasonable self-expectations.
• To cultivate inner discipline, interdependence and a sense of order.
• To develop and foster a sense of respect for oneself, for others, and for the world.
• To acquire academic and social skills necessary for a lifetime of learning.
• To develop habits of initiative and persistence.
• To develop a positive attitude toward school and learning.
