New Vista Montessori School is the Roanoke Valley¡¯s only not-for-profit Montessori school.
As a not-for- profit organization all of our income is spent in the areas that most directly affect the students i.e., high quality teachers and school equipment.
The Montessori Early Childhood program is designed to meet the needs of children ages 2- 6.
Ideally the child would promote into the older classroom at age 3 years and remain with the same teacher for all 3 years.
Six years ago, New Vista featured a new class to introduce 2 -early 3 year olds to the Montessori method of learning.
This foundation-building class stresses potty training, social skills building, development of fine and gross motor skills, improvement of language and speech, science concepts, and number/letter/shape concepts.
The multi-age classrooms provides a backdrop for success in all ages.
