Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Children need to be themselves, to live with other children and with grown-ups, to learn from their environment, to enjoy the present, to get ready for the future, to create, and to love, to learn to face adversity, to behave responsibly, in a word, to be human beings.”
Dorothy Fisher
“The Montessori Manual for
Teachers and Parents”
Auto-Education using Didactic Materials (no human being is educated by anyone else – he must do it himself)
Individual Education freedom to grow (a child is not held to a pace or interest of others)
A Prepared Environment structure and order freedom of movement
Directress Directs child’s needs
Montessori is not accelerated learning at an early age. Academic achievement is a by-product due to the fact that Montessori training takes full advantage of the small child’s intense desire for knowledge of his surroundings and readiness for learning. We do not make geniuses out of average children, but the Montessori method does allow each child to fully develop his or her own capabilities. Montessori provides an entirely different response to learning, preserving the innate intellectual curiosity with which children begin life and it helps the child fall in love with learning at an age when learning is easiest.
