"Our school provides the framework for intellectual, emotional, social and physical growth and development. We believe our enriched learning environment nurtures the growth of self-motivated, self-disciplined and independent learners.
We believe the purpose of early childhood education is to cultivate a child's natural curiosity and desire to learn at an early age, when they are eagerly and spontaneously absorbing everything in their environment.
The Montessori classroom is a "hand-on" environment that is prepared, orderly and stimulating. It allows your child to develop at their own pace. The learning materials that are carefully introduced are sequential and self-correctng, insuring that your child will experience success in their efforts. This success encorages your child to try new things and builds self-confidence. Your child is motivated from within to perform the work and persist at the activity they have selected. Your child develops an "inner-discipline" or control over their own behavior.
In order for learning to occur, there must be concentration. The Montessori classroom allows your child to concentrate by focusing their attention on the task or "work" they are performing with their hands. Each child has a deep love and need for purposeful work. Your child works not for the completion of an activity but for the sake of the activity itself."
