General School Mission

" Children's Day Montessori School exists to create a safe, nurturing environment where children (ages 3-6) develop and flourish as learners respectful of themselves and others, and the global communities in which we live. Parents, teachers and staff collaborate to maintain a flexible yet stable environment in which Montessori principles are practiced.

A Typical Day

"A Typical Day

7:30 - 9:00 a.m. - This flexible start time allows children to arrive at various times according to the schedules of their parents. At 8:00 a.m., lead teachers arrive and begin a four hour Montessori program. Children may choose a variety of activities such as reading a book with a teacher, helping a teacher practice a new song, or returning to a "work" from a previous day.

9:00 - 11:15 a.m. All members of the community should have arrived by 9:00 a.m. During this time children are encouraged to concentrate on their works; they will make choices regarding their works, when to have snack, etc. The teachers provide assistance and guidance to each child as needed"
