Montessori Discovery School

  • Starting from a foundation in the Montessori Method, our Montessori Discovery School's philosophy also draws on other Early Childhood disciplines to provide a unique prepared environment.
  • It allows us to be ready for the unpredictable teachable moment; that magic time when your child is most ready to learn.
  • So we have a classroom rich with stimulus for every developmental level, designed by teachers sensitive to each child's needs.
  • The result is a child centered, mixed age classroom in which your child independently selects activities of personal interest.
  • To balance this freedom, we provide a framework of firm limits, guidelines, and support.
  • At the heart of our program is respect. We respect your child's need for independence, challenge, nurturing, and expression.
  • We provide ample space and time within clear boundaries and supportive schedules to facilitate learning.
  • From your child in return, we expect respect for us, the other children, and the facility.
  • We will neither abandon children in their inexperience, nor dictate their every move, since both extremes are detrimental to growth. Our goal is to provide a balanced program where children have every opportunity to develop in their own way to realize their maximum potential.
