Ballard Montessori School provides a challenging, innovative educational program designed to foster self-esteem, independence, creativity and a love of learning in an exceptionally clean, safe and warm environment.
Our curriculum is enhanced by the teachings of Dr.
Maria Montessori, a world-renowned physician and educator.
We have the full gamut of hands-on materials essential to a young child’s ability to master concepts.
Our program differs from a traditional Montessori program being that we place more emphasis on academic work, especially in the pre-Kindergarten classrooms.
Our classrooms feature an ordered arrangement of learning materials in a warm, non-competitive environment.
The freedom to choose hands-on activities helps to create self-directed independence.
As a child repeats an exercise and becomes involved in a task, concentration develops and the child gains confidence and a love of learning.
The individualized approach of our program allows each child to progress to his or her maximum potential at his or her own developmental rate.
