CLASSROOMS

What Makes Our Classrooms Unique?

 

  • Each child is valued as a unique individual. Montessori education recognizes that children learn in different ways and accommodates all learning styles.

 

  • Children learn at their own pace, advancing through the curriculum when ready.

 

  • Montessori students develop order, concentration, coordination, and independence.

 

  • Students are part of a close, caring community. The multi-age classroom - spanning 3 years - re-creates a family structure.

 

  • Older students enjoy stature as mentors and role models; younger children feel supported and gain confidence about the challenges ahead.

 

  • Teachers model respect, loving kindness, and a belief in peaceful conflict resolution.

 

  • Montessori students enjoy freedom within limits. Working within parameters set by their teachers, students are active participants in deciding what their focus of learning will be. Montessorians understand that internal satisfaction drives the child’s curiosity and interest and results in joyous learning that is sustainable over a lifetime.

 

  • Students are supported in becoming active seekers of knowledge. Teachers provide environments where students have the freedom and the tools to pursue answers to their own questions.

“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
 
Dr. Maria Montessori
