Old Town Montessori School purpose is to lead these children toward Dr.
Maria Montessori’s goal of “cosmic education, which is a complete vision of reality and man, and an ability to interpret both of them in their essence, nature, and reciprocal relationship." The work at each age group represents a continuous program so those parents enrolling their children should be committed to allowing them to complete each three-year cycle.
Our principal Montessori teachers hold an AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) diploma in addition to their undergraduate or graduate degrees, and have completed a year of studies enabling them to understand the needs of children of this age, and to present effectively the programmed, self-correcting materials which Montessori designed.
A language teacher presents Spanish to the primary children who are in the sensitive period for developing language skills.
The elementary children with this background learn to converse, read, and write in Spanish.
Latin is introduced during the third year in the lower elementary class and continues through the upper elementary level.
