We value the human spirit and the development of the whole child - the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive areas of growth. Our unique mixed age classrooms allows for the creation of a strong community and the formation of strong teacher - children bonds.
We Nuture Each Child's Desire to Learn by...
Treating each child as an individual with special gifts to share with the world.
Each child’s unique personality is encouraged to flourish as she becomes an active member of our community. Children are encouraged to contribute and to help others to the best of their abilities, developing strong pride in their abilities and joy in helping others.
Gently introducing children to new concepts.
Careful observation of each child allow our devoted staff to develop lessons and materials that aid in introducing new concepts, refining a skill or developing a deeper understanding. Before a new material is introduced, we make sure there is a reasonable chance of success. This fosters strong self-esteem while encouraging further exploration and desire for learning.
Preparing an environment that stimulates your child to be an active learner.
From birth to age 6, a child is constantly discovering the relationship of the natural world through play. In our classroom, children explore unique materials that engage their mind and body. Children receive individual lessons designed to match each child’s learning style and guide her learning.
Respecting the Individual Child’s selection of work.
Free choice of materials allows each child to explore new concepts that capture his interest at his own pace. Materials are self-correcting making it easy for the child to discover and correct his own errors without adult intervention. What others consider a mistake; we consider an important learning tool.
Operating our classroom with the Montessori philosophy of ‘Freedom Within Limits’.
Respect for each other and the classroom is at the heart of Montessori education. When a child is given responsibility for his actions, he develops a sense of self discipline, an internal source of purpose and self-motivation.
