General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The philosophy of Montessori Center of Downriver, Inc., is the overall theory of an age appropriate learning environment as specified by the National Association of the education of Young Children (NAEYC) guidelines. We believe that the implementation of one theory is not sufficient, therefore, we have combined the theories of Montessori, Piaget, and those of traditional nursery schools to meet the social and cognitive needs of your child.
That each child carries with him/her the person that they will someday become.
That each child is different and therefore, develops and learns at their own pace.
The preschool years are critical years for the cognitive and social development of the child.
The children deserve the opportunity to build self-esteem and positive attitudes about learning.
Our philosophy takes the whole child into account with physical, emotional and cognitive foundations. Our environments fosters creativity through freedom of choice and freedom of movement. By careful observation of the child, the teacher can direct the child to purposeful activities that will fulfill all of their developmental needs."
