Learn what Montessori is all about!

 

We understand that a method of schooling that does not carry the traditional style of learning can be hard to fully understand.  That is why we want to provide as many materials as possible to help educate you on this method of schooling, and articulate why it is truly the best choice for your childs future.  Please take a look at the informational material below.  We want to encourage you to contact us, and to be as open and honest with your questions as you would like. ​ It is our goal to spread the word on an education method well proven since the late 1800's!

Our Philosophy

At The Maria Montessori Center we believe every child is a unique individual worthy of our respect, and guided through affirmative nurturing. 

 

Our goal is to help children develop personal confidence and valuable self-esteem in a warm and supportive environment.

 

As citizens of a global world, our students are taught to honor the rights and privileges of others, while celebrating and embracing diversity in all people.  We also believe our Earth and ecosystem require our care. Toward this end, children are taught to be good stewards of nature in all its forms.

 

Promoting dignity and fostering independence in children is the most important responsibility we have. We encourage close interaction between parents, teachers and administration, working together as a team in our family-centered school community.
