Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

From the Director:

We operate according to the educational guidelines prescribed by Dr. Maria Montessori. From her physiological studies and observations of children, she provided us with scientifically designed learning materials and a unique method of education which we feel most appropriately fit the varied learning needs of young people. Contemporary research in brain development and learning theory has affirmed that her observations were extraordinarily accurate. In areas where research or cultural mandate have given us compelling reason to expand or update what Maria Montessori left in place, we have done so after careful evaluation and discussion.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Founded in 1983, Woodinville Montessori School is a community of lifelong learners dedicated to facilitating the optimal intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development of children using Montessori and contemporary educational methods.

Our vision is of a community that nurtures creative, conscientious and productive individuals committed to caring for themselves, one another, humanity and the environment in an ever-changing global society.

Woodinville Montessori strives to create an environment that fosters strong collaboration between students, parent and the school, develops strong personal values and cooperative social skills, instills a lifelong commitment to give something back through service to others, celebrates and honors diversity.

Now in it twenty-ninth year, Woodinville Montessori School serves 264 families including 334 students in toddler through junior high. A new toddler program opened in January 2009. The school employs roughly 70 faculty members and staff, and occupies three buildings on two campuses, one in downtown Woodinville, and the other in North Creek/Bothell.
