Hunt Ridge Montessori School

  • The Hunt Ridge Montessori School first opened our doors in september, 1983.
  • When we welcomed six children to their first day of school.
  • Today, we are delighted to teach 85 children each day based on the principles set forth by maria montessori.
  • Maria montessori discovered that young children exhibit sensitive periods or a strong sensitivity to particular exercises and objects during various stages of their development.
  • This interest produces in the child an immense amount of intellectually directed activity.
  • The activity brings about the acquisition of that particular knowledge or skill which the child then masters quite easily.
