"We are guided in our pedagogy by the principles of Association Montessori Internationale. Heartland is a collaborative, working community of families and staff, and we are committed to cooperative governance by teachers and parents. As we value diversity, financial accessibility is an important consideration in our visioning and decision-making processes.
Our AMI-trained Montessori teachers function in the classrooms as guides and mentors, providing encouragement and materials appropriate to the interest and capability of each child and increasing the challenge and complexity as that student develops.
