Silver Bow Montessori School
Silver Bow Montessori School is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization dedicated to the development of the “whole” child.
Our purpose is to nurture independent children capable of joyful learning.
The Montessori philosophy of education is based upon respect for each child as a unique human being who carries, unseen within, the person they will become.
To achieve our mission, Silver Bow Montessori School offers a carefully prepared environment, featuring a large campus with open spaces indoors and out.
With a comfortable home-like setting, the classrooms, playground, and garden offer abundant opportunities for learning, character building, and fun.
Our environment provides security for emotional growth as well as intellectual learning.
We share Dr. Maria Montessori's conviction that the preservation of each child's dignity is crucial.
Treated with respect, our students develop respect for self, others, and the environment.
Embracing the Montessori philosophy, our teachers support and nurture the development of each student, based upon individual readiness, needs, interests, and learning style.
The use of hands-on materials and individual lessons allows for a natural progression from concrete work to abstract reasoning as the child develops and matures.
Each student chooses appropriate materials and activities with ample time to satisfy the drive for mastery through repetition.
Without promoting external rewards, independent work habits are nourished, preserving the child's internal motivation.
This self-paced learning and the right to exercise liberty with responsibility provide opportunities for problem solving, priority setting, and decision-making.
Through multi-age groupings, a natural mentoring process develops. More experienced students share their understanding, thereby reinforcing their own learning while building leadership skills.
