Appleseed Montessori School - Warner

Tel: (408)245-7338
At Appleseed Montessori, we believe that competition in education should be introduced only after the child has gained confidence in the use of basic skills.
We believe that a child should never be allowed to risk failure until they have been given a reasonable chance of success.
Each child relates only to their previous work, and their progress is not compared to the achievement of other children or to artificial benchmarks.
When children work in pairs or groups, they learn to work together toward a common goal, drawing on each other’s equally-valued contributions to achieve that goal.
Our teaching method focuses on exercises that develop the child’s ability to concentrate, be self-disciplined, self-motivated, and appreciate order.
Through these exercises and the ability to both work alone and in groups, a love of exploration and learning are developed.
Our goal is to help children to become well-rounded, spontaneous and able to utilize their capabilities to the fullest through nurturing, free play, and focused learning.
Our teachers are responsible for implementing our well-developed, high-quality program.
All of our teachers have some formal teacher preparation experiences in early childhood education and Montessori training, and continue to receive professional development experiences during their employment with Appleseed.
