School Notes:

  • Children’s Garden Montessori School follows the guidelines and philosophy of the American Montessori Society. Our curriculum is based on the fully prepared learning environment which provides a teacher trained to observe, interact with, and present children with information and presentations of new materials, a diverse set of Montessori materials, activities, and experiences, a schedule that provides long blocks of uninterrupted learning time, along with individual, small group and whole class learning activities, a classroom that fosters appropriate social interaction and auto-learning, and clear ground rules that encourage children to respect themselves, others and the environment. Adults in the classroom role-model courtesy, facilitate exploration and independent choices on the part of the child, promote children collaborating together on activities or projects, and encourage children taking responsibility for their actions and their environment.

School Reviews

Our four year old son has been at Children's Garden Montessori for over six months and he couldn't be happier! It did not take him long to feel at ease and confident in the safe, calm, and engaging environment. Joan, Dora, as well as the toddler classroom teachers truly love what they do. They are loving, attentive and really work with the children on an individual level, and it shows, the children both adore and respect them. It is a joy to drop our son off everyday and have him eagerly wave us off, excited for the day. We believe that enrolling our son in Children's Garden Montessori was a very good decision to meet his developmental and social needs, and would highly recommend this school to anyone.
