General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

""Every child has a gift and a talent.
We accept the challenge to find and nurture
these qualities in each child."

Real life experiences provide the basis for learning.
They are essential to the M.C.H. approach.
Creativity is fostered and celebrated.
Manipulative and hands-on learning are used to give children
concrete experiences upon which they can establish a conceptual foundation.
Projects are used regularly to provide children the opportunity to integrate
learning concepts with other skills.
All curriculum areas: the basic skills, social studies, science,
and the arts, are equally important.
Discipline is part of the curriculum. All children are taught productive, positive behaviors.
Students and teachers work and learn in a cooperative, sharing environment.
Children's learning styles vary. Therefore, instruction and learning experiences
are designed and presented in a variety of learning modalities.
An emphasis on world culture gives children the knowledge and skills to live
in a world where global responsibility is becoming increasingly important.
