North Shore Montessori School offers the finest enriched learning experience for Preschool and Kindergarten children.
The Montessori classroom is an environment which is carefully prepared by the teacher.
The whole learning environment - room, materials and social climate - must be supportive of the learner.
The teacher provides necessary resources, including opportunities for children to function in a safe and positive climate.
The teacher thus gains the children's trust, which enables them to try new things and build self-confidence.
Montessori children are extremely adaptable.
They learn to work both independently and in groups.
Since they have been encouraged to make decisions from an early age, they are natural problem-solvers who make appropriate choices and manage their time well.
