Hampton Montessori School
5.00 (1 review)
- Hampton Montessori School follows the basic principles of Dr. Maria Montessori, known as the Montessori Method.
- The Hampton Montessori School occupies two fully equipped pre-primary level classrooms capable of accommodating 20-28 children.
- Young children should be in the process of toilet training before acceptance into the program.
- The Montessori teacher assumes a guiding or directing role and is thus, referred to as the Directress.
- The teacher prepares the environment, demonstrates the correct use of the materials, observes the progress of the child, and functions as the exemplar.
- It is the child who learns; motivated through the work itself.
- The child is free to learn because of an acquired "inner discipline" from the exposure to both physical and mental order.
- The Montessori Method is more than just a method of learning; it is an approach to life.

Attending Hampton Montessori School was the most wonderful experience for our son and daughter. It is in a small section of an old church, but the warmth of the environment and quality of the instruction are truly exceptional. It is a very welcoming school - although firmly grounded in traditional Montessori curiculum the staff also understands the roll of the school in modern life. Due to job moves (and one bad experience at another school) our children have attended several Montessori schools - this was the best and has instilled a true love of learning in two very different children... Thank you Ms. Francis!
