School Notes

  • Children love to learn--every parent knows this.  At Aldea Montessori, we strive to nourish the inquisitive, enthusiastic nature of every child.  Following Maria Montessori's directions, we encourage each child to follow his or her own passions and to add to the list of exciting and new opportunities to explore the world around us.  At Aldea Montessori, children excel in academics because they love to learn, but the staff focuses on creating well-rounded, future adults who are able to think on their feet and see the infinite possibilities in every situation.  Montessori helps children to create their own sense of self--self confidence, self control and self direction. At Aldea Montessori, we believe in the gift within every child.  Come see how we can bring out the magic in your child!
