Tall Oaks Montessori School

Tall Oaks Montessori School offers a unique and quality educational program unequaled in the New River Valley.
Our program is based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Our professional Montessori faculty provides children, from preschool through Upper Elementary, the environment to develop to their maximum potential.
At Tall Oaks Montessori School, teachers trained in Montessori philosophy and technique prepare dynamic learning environments that encourage each child to reason, to cooperate, to collaborate, to negotiate, and to understand.
The teacher's goal is to guide the develpment and competency of the individual child by serving as the facilitator for learning.
The teacher is the child's link to the environment, giving a lesson and stepping back to allow the child to work, while observing and directing each child to the materials appropriate for his/her need.
Each classroom offers a wide variety of Montessori materials, current educational supplies, and handmade materials.

Tall Oaks is a great school! I know my children are in the best learning environment with small class sizes, and a strong curriculum to provide them with a love of learning. The teachers are certified in Montessori education and are passionate about what they do, every day. The personalized lessons offered for each of my children's current interests ensure that they are always challenged where they are at. Now that we have experience in the Elementary program as well, we have an even greater appreciation for the deep love for the process of discovery, hands-on practicing and self-regulated learning that was introduced starting at 1.5 years old. They all love it here, what more can be said?
