Day in the Life

General School Mission

"A great deal of time and care went into preparing the classroom environment. The child's
work within this "'prepared environment" consists mainly of using the materials especially
designed by Maria Montessori.
The child's motivation and interest in the work comes partly from his ability to actively
decide for himself/herself the work with which he/she wishes to become involved in.
Montessorians believe the process of the work is important, rather than the product.
Ideally, then, the child is motivated for the performance of the activity itself, and not the end
result of that activity.
Repetition plays an important role in the child's process of learning. It is through repetition
of an activity that the child learns to perfect himself/herself and his/her skills. The child
strives for precision and perfection in order to build his/her own self-esteem and
confidence. That is why, in the Montessori environment, the child is able to repeat activities
as much as they desire. Each time a child repeats an activity, he/she is gaining confidence
in his/her abilities."
