About the Provider

Description: Far Horizons Montessori School follows the teaching methods developed by Maria Montessori (1870-1952). We are also dedicated to maintaining the high academic standards established by the Oregon Department of Education.

The Montessori method is based on a respect for children and the individual’s desire to learn. The children at Far Horizons are aided and directed in the process of self education by trained Montessori teachers and the Montessori learning materials. A natural inner order leads the child from interest to interest and subject to subject. The curriculum is individualized, although group lessons are regularly scheduled to present new subjects.

Our Montessori classrooms develop the privileges and responsibilities of freedom. The child learns care of the environment and the person as well as following his or her sensitive learning periods to more specific types of knowledge and subject matter.

Montessori learning materials and apparatus help the child master practical life experiences building concentration which progresses to math, language, geography, history, etc. The materials are sensorial based, aiding the child to develop a well defined concrete concept which leads to abstract concept formulation.

Far Horizons Montessori School, a private school, offers a curriculum including the Montessori method, art, music, drama, foreign languages, computer use, and physical education as well as the traditional subjects; mathematics, reading, social studies, handwriting, health, and science.
