The Montessori School / Emerson Farm Middle School

Tel: (310)321-8555
The Montessori School's mission is to nurture and preserve each child's natural curiosity for learning.
We encourage children to develop academic, physical, social and life skills in an environment of mutual respect.
The school is committed to serving a community of children and families from diverse backgrounds.
We recognize parents as the child's first teachers and utilize conferences, meetings, observations, and parent study groups to disseminate information about Montessori philosophy and methodology.
Children are eager, spontaneous learners curious about the world around them.
And you, the parent, are your child's first teacher.
At your knee your child spoke his or her first word, took the first step, heard the first story.
The Montessori School is an extension of the education you have begun at home.
We at Montessori view education as an aid to life, as a process.
Our role is to preserve and nurture your child's natural curiosity and to develop an openness to the limitless possibilities of life.
We believe that children learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process.
Children not only learn, but thrive in an environment that is specially prepared to meet their physical, cognitive and social needs, and satisfy their instrinsic interests.
Our curriculum offers children freedom of choice in a dynamic, energized classroom where learning is tangible.
