Country Hill Montessori

If you want the best for you child, then you want us! Our environment and educational approach is based on the philosophy of the development of the whole child.
Dr. Maria Montessori believed that the "most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the period from birth to age six." At Country Hill Montessori, we teach based on Dr. Montessori's theory that children have an "Absorbent Mind." The children are nurtured in an environment that fosters independence, social and environmental responsibility, thereby providing them a life-long love of learning. In order to develop their intellectual, social, emotional and physical abilities to their fullest, children should receive a certain amount of freedom which is achieved through order and self-discipline.
Our mission is to respect each child's individuality and personality and trust in their inner potential. This will provide them the tools for a successful educational experience.
