Our school community is strengthened through our small classroom sizes allowing for continual parent interaction.
Each Montessori classroom is carefully designed to allow each child to engage at their developmental level.
We require a minimum of 15 hours of continuing education per teacher annually.
While Montessori children learn together, each student’s course is individually determined with one-on-one guidance from the teacher.
We often hear questions about how the Montessori philosophy is worked out and practiced in classrooms. Foundational Montessori tenants such as independence, focus, peace, and individual discovery—what do those actually look like in a classroom full of 3, 4 and 5 year olds?
The Montessori classroom is an interactive community full of children who are simultaneously choosing materials to gather, explore, utilize, and pass on to others.
As students enter the Elementary classrooms each morning, the sense of responsibility and ownership of the classroom meets them in way of preparing the space. They remove chairs from tables and attend to daily jobs including folding and putting away laundry, putting away clean dishes, attending to the classroom turtle, and checking class supplies.
Enrolling your child in an early childhood program is a big decision and for many parents it can be an emotional roller coaster.
