Chaminade University Montessori Lab School Photo #1 - View of the prepared learning environment. The six areas in our Montessori classroom: Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, Cosmic, and Peace help children to develop physically, intellectually, and spiritually.
  • 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.
