Ancona Montessori School-woodlyn

Tel: (610)876-8884
Ancona educates students to become creative problem solvers, confident risk takers and independent, lifelong learners.
Rooted in the Montessori tradition, our child-centered school stimulates the joy of learning and builds a strong academic foundation.
We inspire children to nourish their inner lives, find the power in their own voices and strive for justice and peace.
In a community of cultural and economic diversity, Ancona cultivates understanding, care and respect for others.
Ancona School’s philosophy is rooted in the insights of Maria Montessori, who observed that children are naturally motivated, active learners who build their own understandings of the world as they interact with their environment.
A Montessori classroom encourages a child’s active explorations of carefully prepared materials and empowers the child through choice and freedom to take charge of his/her own learning.
Over the years, Ancona’s Montessori inspired program has evolved, adding the insights and understandings of constructivism – that children learn by constructing meaning from their lived experiences – and of progressivism – that an education for a democratic society must be child-centered, that is, led by the child’s interests, and grounded in authentic experiences – to the Montessori foundation.
Together, the following principles form the complex mosaic of Ancona’s unique Montessori inspired educational program.
