A Growing Place Montessori School

  • A Growing Place Montessori School is a very warm and loving school.
  • As is always true in Montessori, children learn that the limit of their freedom is the interface with the freedom of the other children.
  • This way children feel secure in their own space and share it of their own choice.
  • The session ends with songs and a story, and always "one more hug from Laurie".
  • Here children identify the day, month, year, and the weather.
  • English isn't the only language we use; we count and greet each other with simple phrases in a different language each month.
  • The group time ends with the children going to the many materials available in the different areas of the classroom.
  • In one area children might choose hands-on materials that will help them build the skills for daily living.
  • In another there are classification materials that attract the child to explore the concepts of color, shape, size, and form.
  • In yet other areas of the classroom, children are introduced to basic elements of language development, reading, mathematics, and fun activities in science, geography, and art.
