Montview Community Preschool and Kindergarten is a parent cooperative that honors childhood by supporting diverse families, and by educating children in a play-based environment, emphasizing the joy of discovery, creativity, wonder, and empowerment. At Montview, we celebrate the uniqueness of each child. We acknowledge that each child develops at an individual pace and in unique directions. We are committed to the development of a child's self esteem through child-directed cooperative play. We believe that play is a child's work and that all learning is experiential. Children learn by doing. Montview provides a warm, loving, creative and stimulating environment in which children can interact with materials and with each other. Children choose their own activities with a focus on process rather than product. Children are free to wonder, explore, create, make mistakes, question and repeat experiences from which they can make their own conclusions.
