The mission of The New School of Lancaster is to facilitate the unfolding of each child's unique potential through an outstanding Montessori education that enables a child to meet future challenges, and that encourages a love of learning, independent thinking, social responsibility and individuality in a peaceful atmosphere of respect and acceptance among children and adults.
Because we believe the process of learning is joyful and satisfying, our children are trusted to take responsibility for themselves, for their own time, for the completion of tasks and for their place in our community.
We believe children should be offered respect and encouragement to explore, to question, and to repeat and perfect their skills.
The carefully created and beautifully maintained environment promotes freedom of movement and a developing sense of order.
