General School Mission

"Montessori (1870-1952) established the Montessori method of education. She was an internationally known Italian educator and physician, who recognized that the years between two and six are critical in the educational and social development of the child. It is during this time that a child acquires a fundamental attitude towards both the learning process and social behavior.

The Montessori classroom is designed to give a child freedom in a prepared environment. The child is motivated from within and learns through the successful repetition of the self-correcting materials in the classroom. These materials are designed to awaken the five senses. Presentations made by the teacher provide stimulation for the young child who will discover learning through the various senses.
