Keene Montessori School

  • Keene Montessori School is dedicated to providing an active learning process for children based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori.
  • Children learn through exploration, discovery, and creativity. Our staff members, who are trained in the Montessori philosophy and methods, encourage children to learn to do things for themselves.
  • This process respects the uniqueness of each child and recognizes individuality in the learning process.
  • We are non-denominational, open to children of all backgrounds without discrimination.
  • What We Believe The most important years for learning are from birth to age 6.
  • Children are to be respected as different from adults and as individuals who learn in different ways and at their own pace.
  • Grouping children together to learn encourages children to teach and help each other.
  • Children learn best when active, being explorers of the world ' both indoors and out.
  • We help children to prepare not only to enter First Grade, but with skills to assist them throughout life.
