Maria Montessori with a twenty first century outlook.
We strive to follow a student’s natural development while also ensuring that our students are prepared to face the challenges of a technologically advanced society.
Here at CMMS, our students are held to a high standard of academic success, which we feel will best prepare them for the greater challenge of becoming contributors and leaders in our society.
The result of our method has been that almost all of our students score one to three grade levels above their public school counterparts in reading and mathematics.
Our philosophy here at Children’s Manor is based on the educational precepts of Dr.
Maria Montessori.
The foundation of Dr.
Montessori’s educational theory was based on her observation that children possess an innate desire to explore, discover, and learn about their world.
She observed that children learn best within a social environment that supports personal development.
