Northfield Montessori's underlying develops a sense of community among our families.
We want our families to feel connected to each other beyond drop off and pick up of their children.Our hope is to help foster this sense of community through volunteerism.
Early childhood education has come to accept today what Montessori discovered so long ago: the child under six has a genius capacity for mental absorption.
The 'absorbent mind' will never repeat its miraculous ability to absorb the native tongue, to perfect movement, or to internalize order.
Never will these sensitivities be more alive than in the preschool years.
The entering child is gentle and vulnerable with a need for love, protection, friends and intellectual stimulation.
These are serious needs.
To serve children directly is not what they need; to give help is sometimes an obstruction.
Therefore, the Montessori prepared environment allows children to act freely on their own initiative, meeting needs through individual, spontaneous activity.
