Tall Oaks Montessori School offers a unique and quality educational program unequaled in the New River Valley.
Our program is based on the teachings of Dr.
Maria Montessori.
Our professional Montessori faculty provides children, from preschool through Upper Elementary, the environment to develop to their maximum potential.
At Tall Oaks Montessori School, teachers trained in Montessori philosophy and technique prepare dynamic learning environments that encourage each child to reason, to cooperate, to collaborate, to negotiate, and to understand.
The teacher's goal is to guide the develpment and competency of the individual child by serving as the facilitator for learning.
The teacher is the child's link to the environment, giving a lesson and stepping back to allow the child to work, while observing and directing each child to the materials appropriate for his/her need.
Each classroom offers a wide variety of Montessori materials, current educational supplies, and handmade materials.
