School Notes:

We believe that Guiding Light Montessori students are in the process of becoming independent critical thinkers, peacemakers, protectors of the environment and responsible citizens.We believe children learn best when they are active participants in their own learning and are expected to work to their potential.We believe that education involves the development of the whole person, physical, emotional social intellectual and spiritual.We believe the process, not the product, is the lifelong lesson.We believe that when parents and teachers work together with their children, the Montessori philosophy can facilitate lifelong learning skills and strong self-esteem.We believe that a child learns best if given freedom to discover, explore and create in a prepared and enriched environment under the guidance and encouragement of a trained Directress.Our respectful classrooms foster these qualities.Our Montessori classrooms are based on the principles of:Respect for the childRespect between the childrenRespect for the process of gaining knowledge and skillsRespect for individual and cultural differencesRespect for the communityRespect for the environmentRespect for the teacher, parents and for the Montessori materials
