Tuckahoe Montessori School (TMS) has served Richmond children and their families for over thirty years. Tuckahoe Montessori School offers three programs to meet the educational and developmental needs of children between the ages of 18-months and nine years. In each classroom, students benefit from a purposeful implementation of the Montessori method, growing in autonomy within a framework that emphasizes peaceful order, fosters the natural curiosity that leads to learning, and guides exploration of increasingly challenging concepts. TMS is committed to communicating the philosophy of the classrooms to parents who may be concerned that a Montessori school offers too much or two little freedom to children.
Both concerns were actually addressed by Dr. Montessori: “To give a child liberty is not to abandon him to himself.” At TMS, children are offer a guided freedom, one that inspires while reinforcing self-possession and peaceful interactions. Parents of TMS students are provided numerous opportunities to learn more about the Montessori Method, to gain insight into their child’s daily experiences and to discover strategies for communicating Montessori principles in the home.
