At The Julia Brown Montessori Schools, we work with nature, not against it, in helping your child achieve his or her goal.
Our program accepts the endless energies, the creative impulses, and insatiable curiosities of the children and gradually directs their efforts into rewarding channels.
Children have a strong natural desire to learn. This desire can best be nurtured by allowing the child to choose his or her own activities and to work at his or her own pace.
No one can produce a better lesson schedule than the one produced by the child's own interests.
When they are ready for each step in their development, their enthusiasm for this part of the program is obvious.
As a complement to the Montessori program, the children are also introduced to a variety of special activities during the years they spend with us.
In past years, for example, we have offered special programs in dance, gymnastics, music, or a foreign language as a means of enhancing our broad-based curriculum.
