Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world.

- Maria Montessori

The secret of all nature is to be found in the soul of a child.

- Maria Montessori

Through working by themselves, children acquire an active discipline, a practical independence, and a gradual increase in knowledge.

- Maria Montessori

Every child carries within him (unseen) the person he will become. In order to develop the physical, intellectual and spiritual powers to the fullest, he must have freedom, a freedom to be achieved through order and self-discipline.

- Maria Montessori

The world of the child is filled with sights and sounds, which at first appear chaotic. From this chaos, the child must gradually create order and learn to distinguish among impressions that assail her senses, slowly, but surely gaining mastery of herself and her environment.

- Maria Montessori

Classrooms

Each classroom is carefully designed to meet the needs of the infants, toddlers, twos, and 3 – 6 year olds they serve. Low tables, chairs & materials within easy reach offer your child every opportunity for independence. The child is invited to explore and discover within our carefully prepared learning environment.

The classroom includes these areas:

PRACTICAL LIFE: The activities are reflective of a child’s daily life, encouraging the child to develop concentration, coordination and independence through learning to care for himself, for others, and for his environment.

SENSORIAL: These exercises focus on colors, shapes and sizes. The purpose is to aid in the refinement of the child`s senses.

LANGUAGE: The activities are designed to aid the child in the development of reading, writing and vocabulary skills.

MATH: Our concrete math materials enable the child to learn basic mathematical concepts and skills.

GEOGRAPHY: We introduce the child to concepts of physical space. We begin with body awareness and evolve toward working with maps and globes.

SCIENCE: Exploration of the physical environment increases the child’s awareness of the world around him.

ART: Creativity & expression are explored through the use of various artistic media.

MUSIC: Dancing, singing and the use of musical instruments encourage the child to actively experience the joy of music.

DRAMA: Imaginative expression through the use of puppetry, costumes, and make-up enrich the child’s development.

OUTDOORS: Large muscle exercise, imaginative play, games, motor skill development and gardening are among the activities the children enjoy out of doors.
