Giving Tree Montessori School

  • At The Giving Tree, we believe in creating a fun, supportive and safe learning environment that is based on respect for the children, and that embraces how special each child is.
  • Through our play-based program, children can share experiences with friends and care for others.
  • It also gives them opportunities through a variety of activities and learning spaces, to build their independence and confidence.
  • We base our success on how happy we all are together, knowing that children thrive and learn best when they have the time and space to wonder, to imagine, to ask questions, and to actively participate in order to explore the word around them and how they fit into it.
  • The Mission of Giving Tree is to provide many opportunities for children to participate and learn through playing in a safe and secure environment, allow children to work individually and in group situations, help children to develop a healthy sense of themselves and respect for others, encourage children to cultivate a positive outlook on learning and develop their natural curiosity about life.
