Footsteps Montessori

  • Footsteps Montessori provides a quality educational experience for children of preschool and kindergarten age - some of the most important learning years of a lifetime.
  • In our classes, children make choices according to their individual needs and interests.
  • Following their natural path of discovery enables each child to grow as a whole being: emotionally, physically, intellectually, and socially.
  • As we nourish the inborn spirits of these youngsters, they reveal a tremendous capacity to care for themselves, their environment, and the needs of others around them.
  • We respect and encourage their individuality, thereby nurturing a lifelong love of learning.
  • Our children comprise the core of a loving social community which offers friendship and support to all.
  • Together we strive to lead humanity towards a more tolerant and peaceful world.
