General School Mission

"Our mission is to empower preschool children to unfold their potential as whole and unique individuals.
In the Montessori environment the teacher observes and guides the children to work, offering avenues of exploration and discovery in the form of individual and group presentations. The children then learn to initiate their own work.
Individual goals are determined by the needs of each child. Emphasis is placed on the development of independence, responsibility and self-awareness. Key concepts that are emphasized are respect for self, respect for others and respect for the environment."
