General School Mission

"Our programs provide children the advantage of learning through the Montessori system of education pursuing programs relevant to their age group, in their formative years.
Montessori education encompasses a philosophy by which children
are allowed to develop naturally and fully, each at his or her own
pace. Under the guidance of a trained Montessori teacher, in a
specially prepared environment, and using carefully formulated
materials, children are given the opportunity to learn in the best
ways - by choice and by discovery. The dual qualities of
independence and a love of learning, natural tendencies for the
children are nurtured in such a way that both competence and
confidence result. Children become self-directed learners.
These competent and self-confident young people will acquire the necessary tools for creative thinking and successful future learning and living. The important attitudes, appreciations, skills, ideas and habits acquired by Montessori children provide them a head start when they transition to traditional
schools. Our goals for excellence are manifested in the quality of the staff and the educational materials we use for teaching the young minds.
