Blue Mountain Montessori accepts children aged 2.5 to 6 for preschool and kindergarten.
We look forward to working with you to determine if Blue Mountain Montessori is a fit for you and your child.
As an educational method, the Montessori approach focuses on the individuality of each child.
The Montessori method encourages independence and freedom within appropriate limits, which is always linked to responsibility.
Activities in the classroom are called works to communicate the idea that work is positive and fulfilling.
Every work is carefully selected and placed in the classroom with a specific purpose.
These self-contained and self-correcting works introduce concepts that increase in complexity and abstraction as the child progresses through the years.
