Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Montessori method has been time-tested for over 90 years and has achieved success throughout the world.
Montessori is a totally positive environment for your child.
Each child is taught individually.
Children work at their own pace and at their own level.
The child has the unique opportunity to fulfill his/her potential.
Habits and skills developed in a Montessori classroom remain useful for a lifetime.
The Montessori classroom is a land of opportunity for the child and is a truly joyful place to be.
The hand and the senses lead the child through the learning process. True learning consists of the active acquisition of the capacity to do things for oneself, not the passiveacquisition of data.
The teacher's mission is to assist the needs of each child within the context of that child's social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual development.
The teacher shall celebrate the child. Montessori teachers share a commitment to assist each child with the development of tolerance and respect for people. The
Montessori environment fosters an understanding of the cultural diversity of the world in which we live, and a respect for the natural environment
