Silverbow 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.
