To grasp the essence of Montessori education, just step inside our classroom.
A hallmark of Montessori education is its hands-on approach to learning.
Curriculum areas contain a sequential array of lessons to be learned.
Students stay with the class and teacher for the entire cycle forging a stable community and meaningful bonds.
In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning.
A full complement of specially designed Montessori learning materials are meticulously arranged and available for use in an aesthetically pleasing environment.
Beginning at an early age, Montessori students develop order, coordination, concentration, and independence.
Students are part of a close, caring community.
The design and flow of the Montessori classroom create a learning environment that accommodates choice.
In this safe and empowering environment, students find joy in learning.
The classroom is prepared by the teacher to encourage independence, freedom within limits, and a sense of order.
There are spaces suited to group activity, and areas where a student can settle in alone.
Montessori students learn through sensory-motor activities, working with materials that develop their cognitive powers through direct experience: seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, touching, and movement.
