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.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
