Emotional Growth Through a loving and nurturing environment, we strive to help the children internally recognize the interconnectivity of school and home. This foundation surrounds the child with a support system that allows for acceptance of themselves and others, while assisting in their personal emotional growth.
Intellectual Development Our Montessori classrooms provide a stimulating, calm, safe environment, where the children develop a love of learning. We provide opportunities for cooperative and independent learning experiences, while promoting higher levels of thinking at each child's unique developmental level.
Social Growth As the children grow it is our goal to help each child develop a mutual respect for others. Through open communication the children learn to solve problems, while gaining a sense of responsibility and accountability for their own actions. This fosters responsible, cooperative behavior, which we believe is the foundation for future social interactions.
Physical Development The Practical Life area of our classrooms develops skills for care and respect of the body. Through these activities the children develop fine and gross motor skills. We also utilize the newest information which shows- the correlation of physical activity and brain development. Our outdoor environment also introduces the children to various activities, which allow for each child's physical growth.
Spiritual Awareness Through a reverence for life, we hope to help the children become aware of the Earth, nature and their place in it. Our curriculum teaches virtues and values such as compassion for others, honesty, and kindness. This emphasis on global awareness and the encouragement of virtues and values is a true Montessori tradition.
The Montessori Philosophy and Method supports the following ten areas of development that you can expect to see in your child:
A joy of learning
Learning through discovery
Attachment to reality
Love of order
Ability to choose
Enjoyment of quiet/spirituality
