Keene Montessori School is dedicated to providing an active learning process for children based on the principles of Dr.
Maria Montessori.
Children learn through exploration, discovery, and creativity.
Our staff members, who are trained in the Montessori philosophy and methods, encourage children to learn to do things for themselves.
This process respects the uniqueness of each child and recognizes individuality in the learning process.
We are non-denominational, open to children of all backgrounds without discrimination.
What We Believe The most important years for learning are from birth to age 6.
Children are to be respected as different from adults and as individuals who learn in different ways and at their own pace.
Grouping children together to learn encourages children to teach and help each other.
Children learn best when active, being explorers of the world – both indoors and out.
We help children to prepare not only to enter First Grade, but with skills to assist them throughout life.
