We continue to put the Child ahead of any other agenda and support the rights of children in their quest for the knowledge they need for self-actualization.
We expect parents to:
…take the time to understand the Montessori Method through reading and attending our informational meetings.
…provide opportunities for creative development in the home through the provision of space, time, and materials.
…aid their children in the process of self-knowledge by encouraging hands-on explorations.
…read to their children daily.
…support the essence of childhood and to limit, if not eliminate, use of electronic entertainment devices.
…encourage participation of children in the culture of the home.
…value the experience of community ahead of the culture of competition.
The school maintains a quaint, schoolhouse feel in an urban environment. We understand that that people can only comfortably maintain fewer than 200 stable relationships, so we prefer to keep the community personable.
Our dual language program (Spanish/English) is one of the best in town with fully staffed, all-day native Spanish speakers in every class. Our children really learn the language and are exposed to different accents.
Our Montessori environments are beautiful and meticulously designed. These "prepared environments” are designed to facilitate maximum independent learning and exploration by the child.
We expect students to have the possibility of fully benefitting from an authentic Montessori experience. Students should be able to act in a respectful and sociable manner for 30 minutes or more without adult intervention.
