Wasecca Montesori School

  • Waseca School is offering a Montessori education to a diverse community for over a decade.
  • Waseca School seeks to create a peaceful and diverse educational community serving as a link to a solution for the children of the earth.
  • Presently, over 150 children ages one to twelve benefit from the unique educational environment Waseca has to offer.
  • Children are oriented at an early age to function independently in the classroom, choosing their own work, taking responsibility for putting it away and cleaning up after themselves.
  • At Waseca, freedom and responsibility go hand-in-hand and children are encouraged to make choices.
  • Lead teachers are Montessori trained and prepare the environment on an ongoing basis so that children are drawn to the work and meaningful activity.
  • After an initial lesson by the teacher, the child has the opportunity to practice on their own and learn by doing.
  • Using this method, teachers act as facilitators and children learn to learn.
  • Skill and knowledge acquired in this way enhances the child’s self-esteem and stimulates his or her natural love of learning.
