General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our teachers are A.M.S. certified with many years of experience creating a rich environment in which we recognize that the only valid impulse to learning is the self motivation of the child. Teachers prepare the classroom, direct activities, and offer students motivation as needed. It is the individual child who tries and triumphs, persists and discovers, and motivates oneself to master the multi-sensory activities presented each day.

A Typical Day

In addition to 4 full-time teachers, 3 enrichment teachers work weekly with students in the following areas:
Spanish & Sign Language
Music & Creative Dance
Art Appreciation & History

The Outdoor Classroom:
In addition to time for free play and exploration, we use all aspects of our picturesque campus to enhance the Montessori Curriculum. Groups have ventured out to paint "the Rock" following a lesson about cave paintings in their weekly Art Appreciation & History class. After an Earth Day story, children planted seedling trees in the forest that borders the schoolyard.
