Eac Montessori School

  • The mission of our school is to inspire the development of children toward becoming independent, responsible, contributing individuals, in a safe, supportive, culturally diverse environment that gives them the freedom to explore, cooperate, create, and become.
  • In doing so we strive for the child to become one who seeks a personal vision, who uses their talents and skills to enrich individual and community life.
  • We educate children in an atmosphere which promotes respect and dignity for themselves, for others, and for the world in which we live.
  • The Montessori approach to education is a holistic one, offering not only a rigorous academic curriculum but addressing as well the spiritual, emotional, physical, and social needs of the child.
  • We celebrate meaningful traditions. We honor the sanctity of each person's spirit.
  • We provide the needed security to embrace challenge. We nourish the deep lasting relationship between children, teachers, and parents, which deepens the learning experience.
  • Within the Montessori classroom children face a microcosm of the world.
