School Notes

  • Individual Learning At our school, we believe that each child develops according to their ability and will instruct your child on an individual basis. Rather than accelerating children based on their age or the progress or other children in the classroom, the Montessori method introduces concepts on an individualized basis and advances children based on their own abilities. Our classrooms bring together multi-age groups where children have the opportunity to develop leadership and learning abilities. These skills will serve them for a lifetime.
