General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"It is our belief that a child's most significant learning takes place from birth to age 6, a stage Maria Montessori referred to as "the absorbent mind". We believe that movement preceded thought and that learning takes place most ideally in an environment that allows children to explore abstract concepts through hands-on experiences. Our teaching method is a child-centered approach that utilizes ongoing observation by the teacher to determine and respond to individual needs. This maximizes each child's academic and personal success.

We consider that each child is unique and that children at this age develop and progress at their own pace. We treat each child with respect and encourage our students to do the same in their interactions with others, incorporating grace and courtesy into our daily routine. We see a child's education as the result of many influences, including, parents, teachers, peers and the natural world. To this end, we place a strong emphasis on building the support and direct involvement of our parents, both in and out of the classroom."
