Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

From the Director:

"The Montessori environment seeks to bring forth each child's creative genius. This can only take place in an environment where they are free to explore and develop at their own pace. The freedom to learn in an environment designed specifically to nurture the child in all aspects of his development is the gift of Montessori education." -- Excerpted from the Starwood Montessori website

From the Director:

"Our Montessori-certified teachers approach their classrooms with a gentle enthusiasm, and work together with their assistants to create and maintain a dynamic environment for the development of their students. Parents are encouraged to contribute their talents and experiences through occupational or cultural demonstrations, volunteering in the library, or helping with projects." -- Excerpted from the Starwood Montessori website

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Starwood Montessori School is a learning community composed not only of its staff and the children who attend, but also their families and members of the community as a whole. We strive to emphasize the magic of learning for its own sake, rather than for external rewards or approval."
