School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe the foundation for a child's learning includes a stable and nurturing partnership between family, the caregivers, the prepared Montessori environment and the community offered to maximize the total development and uniqueness of each child. We have extended our belief in the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori by providing developmentally appropriate activities to offer a broad range of services to the children and their families.
Our curriculum embraces the belief in serving the individual learning styles of children, to encourage self-confidence, spontaneity, curiosity, and self-discipline. Preparing the child not for the present or immediate future, but in the vision of Dr. Montessori - for life.
We celebrate the pluralistic society we live in and serve by modifying our behaviors, attitudes and our curriculum to encourage respect, dignity and appreciation of diversity. We believe in life long learning and strive to establish patterns and expectations of success, a climate of overall development of the child. One that will encourage creativity and self-expression. One that would support the natural curiosity in a child. One that would awaken interest in self-expression and foster a love towards self and others.
We believe in children, the pride of our ancestors, the dreams of our future.
