Countryside Montessori Academy

  • Countryside Montessori Academy embraces all of the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori in its approach to learning.
  • The "absorbent mind" will never repeat its miraculous ability to absorb the native tongue, to perfect movement or internalize order.
  • Never will these sensitivities be more alive than in the preschool child.
  • The Montessori prepared environment allows children to act freely on their own initiative, meeting needs through individual spontaneous activity.
  • The children learn to work quietly and intently on their own "work." They are building concentration and self-discipline.
  • The Montessori classroom is a community. In the Montessori environment children work individually, in very small groups, or sit quietly observing.
  • The children work freely and when they complete their work, they return it to its place on the shelf.
