  • The Derry Montessori School was founded in 1982, The educational philosophy of the School is based on the teachings of Maria Montessori.
  • The environment is a key feature of the philosophy.
  • The materials are designed to provide each child with successful learning experiences.
  • Children can choose freely, or accept guidance as needed, moving about the classroom constructively, following their natural developmental stages of learning.
  • We call these stages the Sensitive Periods of Development.
  • This is a time in each childs life where their sensitivity to developing certain concepts or particular skills is at its prime.
  • Giving the child ample opportunity to interact with the materials at these special times in their development, affords them the ability to reach a high level of mastery and to maximize the personal satisfaction in achieving these skills.
  • This method creates the fertile ground necessary for developing a strong sense of self and personal pride in their achievements.
  • The environment provides each child with an individualized exposure to learning that encourages an ability to learn freely, with responsibility.
  • All of these elements are vital to successful living.
  • It is always our goal to provide an environment that is safe, clean, peaceful, respectful, beautiful, and ordered, with a rich cultural curriculum, and the provision of positive role models that facilitate a well-rounded educational and social process.
