General School Mission

"Our main purpose is to satisfy the total need of the children, by working together with parents and staff members to create a community of caring, considerate adults. We are here to encourage the children to be independent in thought and action, self-disciplined and self-directed. Many children are at Child Garden Montessori for most of their day; we are the adults with whom they spend more than half of their waking hours. At Child Garden, we guide the children in the process of learning through discovery. As adults we are enthusiastic participants in this process, reflecting that a child "hears and forgets, sees and remembers, does and understands.""
