Dearborn Heights Montessori Center provides a safe, nurturing environment unifying academic challenge with quality opportunities for social, emotional, and intellectual growth.
This includes a multicultural emphasis that values individuality and attainment of each child's fullest potential.
With the Montessori philosophy as our foundation, we guide development of responsibility and respect by cultivating independent thinking, self-awareness, cooperation and inner discipline.
Dearborn Heights Montessori Center is committed to the principles upon which our school was founded and still operates: respect for children, a strong commitment to non-violence, and a deep belief in the value of education.
We trust the children in our school to succeed, and we work daily to provide a school climate in which they can prove us right.
In the Montessori classroom, the children are motivated by their own interest and excitement.
In this atmosphere they are encouraged to develop a positive self-image and to experience the satisfaction of helping others, while experiencing the joy of learning.
