Thevenet Montessori School

  • Thevenet integrates the Montessori curriculum with the distinctive educational philosophy of its founders, The Religious of Jesus and Mary.
  • The abiding hallmark of the Thevenet tradition is a particular concern for each child as a unique person of transcendent worth.
  • This respect for the depths of the human being necessarily involves respect for nature and the earth, a reverence for all life.
  • Believing that the quality of group life is a crucial factor in the learning process, we seek to build a sense of community where children and adults want to go every day, a place where there is an ever growing awareness that we are part of a global family and must learn to live and work together.
  • We see ourselves as facilitators to aid in the development of the special gifts and talents of each child, by means of individualization and self-directed learning.
  • We see this as a realizable ideal because we believe with Maria Montessori that children contain within them remarkable powers of imagination, creativity and self-direction.
