Our mission is to educate young children to be strong, well-adjusted personalities with the motivation and courage to make independent decisions with discernment. We will help children develop respect and mutual understanding of all other individuals. Children will become stewards of the environment and learn to protect and ensure the health of our world.
From an early age, we will introduce children to the pleasure of self-accomplishment and inspire them to become self-directed learners. Children will be encouraged to have a persistent attitude about life and learning.
With these principles established at a young age, children will become confident, responsible, self-motivated, and contributing members of their communities.
For over a century, the child-focused approach that Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, developed for educating children has been transforming schools worldwide. The Montessori classroom is a sanctuary for learning that meets the vast developmental needs of young children and prepares them to be independent and capable individuals beyond the classroom.
Carefully selected materials and a responsive curriculum provide a road map for each learner’s journey of discovery. A customized program for the child emerges from and harmonizes with their unique needs.
Children work individually and in groups to discover and explore their world and develop their full potential. From social-emotional growth and the creation of friendships to the grasp and mastery of abstract concepts, the child’s universe expands with the gentle support of teachers and peers.
