General School Mission

The main objective of Marimont Montessori School Inc is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment which will help children develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills and ideas which are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning.

The specific goals for the children who attend the School are:

* To develop a positive attitude toward school and learning.
* To develop a sense of high self-esteem.
* To building habits of concentration for lifelong study skills.
* To develop and foster an abiding curiosity.
* To develop habits of initiative and persistence.
* To foster inner discipline and a sense of order.
* To develop sensory-motor skills in order to sharpen the ability to discriminate and judge.
* To develop socially-acceptable behavior.
* To acquire the basic skills necessary for a lifetime of learning
* To help develop each child's innate, ultimate potential through high self-expectations.

The structure of the curriculum is based on five developmental areas: Sensory and Perceptual, Physical and Motor, Self-help Skills, Language, and Social and Emotional. Dr. Montessori emphasized the need for a rich environment, and noted the speed at which children can develop: "If our own adult ability were to be compared with the child's, we would need sixty years of hard work to do what he or she does in three."
