We employ the Montessori Method which emphasizes the development of all facets of a child’s unfolding personality—social, emotional, cognitive, and physical.
Our child-centered prepared environment contains a wide variety of materials from which a child may choose an activity which supports the development of the whole child.
The trained Montessori teacher acts as a guide to demonstrate lessons and then encourage children in their exploration, discovery, practice, and success.
Each achievement opens a new and exciting challenge for the child.
Our prepared environment is purposefully prepared to provide the child with a variety of diverse ways to develop and grow and become a successful and independent critical thinker and joyful learner.
