Dover Montessori School is a preschool and kindergarten that was founded in 1969.
At Dover Montessori, a high quality, stimulating educational environment is presented to the child so that she can develop in accordance with her natural tendencies and inner needs.
The use of developmentally appropriate, interactive materials enhance the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth of the child.
Individual learning experiences enable the child to progress at her own pace and encourage the development of a unique personality.
The Dover Montessori School's philosophy is to develop and satisfy the basic tendencies in the child for order, repetition, exploration, movement, and excellence.
When these tendencies are developed, the child becomes secure.
When the child is secure, he explores his world with confidence and enthusiasm.
This exploration leads to experimentation and discovery which in turn contributes to his whole personality and development.
