Northfield Montessori

  • Northfield Montessori's underlying develops a sense of community among our families.
  • We want our families to feel connected to each other beyond drop off and pick up of their children.Our hope is to help foster this sense of community through volunteerism.
  • Early childhood education has come to accept today what Montessori discovered so long ago: the child under six has a genius capacity for mental absorption.
  • The 'absorbent mind' will never repeat its miraculous ability to absorb the native tongue, to perfect movement, or to internalize order.
  • Never will these sensitivities be more alive than in the preschool years.
  • The entering child is gentle and vulnerable with a need for love, protection, friends and intellectual stimulation.
  • These are serious needs. To serve children directly is not what they need; to give help is sometimes an obstruction.
  • Therefore, the Montessori prepared environment allows children to act freely on their own initiative, meeting needs through individual, spontaneous activity.
