Timeless Teachings in a Changing World


Our Montessori classrooms are busy, productive places with attractive and carefully made materials, which enable our students to work at their own pace. Each child is allowed to choose his/her own work, carrying it out to completion with great concentration and enthusiasm. Our curriculum emphasizes the development of the whole child within a helpful, respectful, and cooperative community.

 

We help each child achieve his/her full potential by following these key premises of Montessori education:

 

  • Children are to be respected as individuals who differ from each other.

  • Children possess unusual sensitivity and mental powers for absorbing and learning from their environment.

  • The most important years of growth are the first six years of life, when unconscious learning is gradually brought to the conscious level.

 

Ages 2.5 - 4.75 years

Students must be 2.5 years old by Sept. 30th and be potty-trained to be eligible for this program.
