General School Mission

"Nicholas Montessori School enrolls children two and a half through six years of age. As an American Montessori Society Affiliate, the school integrates the classical Montessori curriculum such as Sensorial, Practical Life, Languages, Mathematics, Science, Music, Geography, Cooking and Creative Art, which supports and encourages the child's growth towards confidence and independence. The nurturing home like atmosphere, promotes the feeling of family and concern for our community as the child's awareness grows. Social interaction develops naturally; friends work together and groups spontaneously form around many areas of academic and cultural interest. The three-year age span in the classroom, the philosophy of individualized and self-directed instruction encourages the development of respect for individual differences and a helpful attitude towards others. The Kindergarten program is built into the Montessori curriculum for five year olds. A low teacher / pupil ratio is maintained to support individual pursuit of excellence.
