General School Mission

"We believe children are active learners. They need an environment where they can safely explore using all of their senses. Their learning grows from concrete to abstract, with many connecting steps in-between. Our rich learning environment is a child centered, nurturing, non-competitive place where children are willing to risk - to stretch and grow. Children develop self-confidence and healthy self-esteem when they are accepted and respected as individuals and are part of a group. Children learn to accept each others differences and the ways they are the same in our culturally relevant program.

We use the Montessori Method, equipment, and philosophy. This introduces children to their own joy of discovery and learning, love of order, independence with self-discipline, self-confidence, and healthy self-esteem. Our environment is prepared so that the child learns to choose from a wide variety of “work” in Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, Science, and Art. Children come to appreciate beauty and quiet concentration. They are able to work independently at their own level of interest and ability.
