The Montessori Childrens School

  • "The mission of the Montessori Children's School is: to inspire a passion for excellence in all of the children and adults who are a part of its community, to nurture the curiosity, creativity and imagination born within each of us and to awaken the human spirit of every child.
  • The purpose then, of our school is to meet this objective.
  • This is done in two ways: first, by allowing each child to experience the excitement of learning by her own choice rather than by being forced, and second, by helping him to perfect all his natural tools for learning so that his ability will be at a maximum in future learning situations.
  • The Montessori materials have this dual long-range purpose in addition to their immediate purpose of giving specific information to the child.".
