  • Shrewsbury Montessori School One school, two campuses Shrewsbury campus serves children age three through grade six.
  • Shrewsbury Montessori School provides a nurturing, yet stimulating environment where children can revel in the joys of learning.
  • These early years are essential in creating a life-long yearning to seek out personal growth and to develop into a self-sufficient and capable member of society.
  • It is the mission of Shrewsbury Montessori School to provide a prepared environment in accordance with the Montessori Philosophy in which each child may live his or her life according to individual developmental needs.
  • Our goal is to develop the personality of the whole child and to encourage such concepts as creativity, self-discipline, initiative, independence, self-confidence, and a sense of personal and communal responsibility.
  • The golden beads, used throughout Shrewsbury Montessori School, represent the progression of understanding as a child learns in a Montessori environment; from units to tens to hundreds to thousands.
  • Each child begins with concrete understanding using the single golden bead and ten-bar and moves naturally towards abstraction when the hundred-square and thousand-cube are introduced.
  • The golden beads impart a sense of awe and understanding, and demonstrate the essence of what we do at a Montessori school.
  • We begin with the single bead, a simple concept, and progress as each child is ready, to the next level of difficulty, or understanding.
  • Thus, our children learn how a single bead, when grouped with others, forms a ten-bar, a hundred-square, and a thousand-cube and that each of these can build something much larger, stronger, and more complete.
  • At Shrewsbury Montessori School, in any given day, in all of our classrooms, we see it happen time and again with every child: it all starts with a single bead... and leads to a thousand possibilities.
