Discovery Montessori

  • Discovery Montessori Elementary School is a private school offering a Montessori education to those enrolled.
  • We aim to provide each child with an individual developmentally appropriate educational program within the framework of a full Montessori curriculum and philosophy.
  • This includes the use of manipulative materials on the floor and at the table.
  • We work towards, and therefore the child has to be capable of , achieving independence with an inner self-discipline, self-motivation, love of learning, care of self, others, and the environment.
  • Discovery Montessori Elementary School admits students of any race, color, nationality, and ethnic origin.
  • Provisions are made at the school to accommodate children with special needs who are able to function in and benefit from our program.
  • Montessori Education is based on the principle that every child carries within the potential of the adult he/she is to become.
  • Dr. Montessori believed that no human being is educated by another person.
  • The aim is to assist the child to educate himself.
  • The aim is also to develop within the child a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge that will remain long after the regular school day or school years are over.
