Tara Montessori School

The Tara Montessori School was founded in 1988 by Toni Dunleavy, and subscribes to the principles of Montessori Learning.
Classes are available for Toddlers, Transition, Pre-School and Kindergarten age children.
The primary goal of the Tara Montessori School is to help children reach full potential in all areas of life.
Activities promote the development of social skills, emotional growth, and physical coordination as well as cognitive preparation.
The holistic curriculum, under the direction of a specially trained teacher, allows the children to enjoy the experience of learning and time to enjoy the process.
It also insures the development of self-esteem and provides the experience from which children increase their knowledge.
Each Montessori class operates on the principle of freedom within limits.
Every program has its set of ground rules which differs from age to age, but is always based on core Montessori beliefs, respect for each other and for the environment.
