General School Mission

"At Tall Oaks Montessori School, teachers trained in Montessori philosophy and technique prepare dynamic learning environments that encourage each child to reason, to cooperate, to collaborate, to negotiate, and to understand. The teacher's goal is to guide the develpment and competency of the individual child by serving as the facilitator for learning. The teacher is the child's link to the environment, giving a lesson and stepping back to allow the child to work, while observing and directing each child to the materials appropriate for his/her need. Each classroom offers a wide variety of Montessori materials, current educational supplies, and handmade materials. Children are free to move toward work which stimulates and satisfies their inner motivations."
