Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy at Riverdale Montessori School is to give each child what he or she needs. Children are encouraged to reach their full potential through teaching methods that develop the whole personality of the child, not only the intellectual facilities, but also the powers of deliberation, initiative, independent choice and emotional development.

The overall goal of each classroom is to have children enjoy themselves, learn at his/her own pace and to begin in the education process with a positive attitude for school.
