Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We know that children are naturally curious and inquisitive. We believe that when a child's interests and enthusiasms are met with opportunities to discover, a child develops deep understanding and the habits of lifelong learning. Habits such as persistence and self-reliance, coupled with a strong sense of identity, allow a child to interact confidently with the world. Our philosophy is derived from the observations of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) who believed that education must serve the whole child by nurturing his capabilities. To follow the child and to meet his needs is the basic philosophy of Montessori. We facilitate
learning by providing rich experiences based on discovery, rather than simple lecture and memorization. Developing deep understanding also results with maturity and strong academic achievement. At Brookview, we offer a place where each child can live up to his potential.
