Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that Montessori classrooms are based on the principle of respect:
respect for the child

respect between children

respect for individual and cultural differences

respect for the teacher, parents and for the Montessori materials.

We believe that children learn best when they are active participants in their own learning and are expected to work to their potential.

We believe that TMA students are in the process of becoming academic achievers with a love of learning, critical thinkers, creative problem-solvers who use technology as a tool, peacemakers, protectors of the environment and its resources, and responsible, productive and caring community citizens.

We believe that the triangle of child-parent-teacher working together facilitates optimal learning and high self-esteem.
