About the Provider

Description: OUR MISSION Provide strong academic foundation using the Montessori Method. An environment that meets the intellectual, social, emotional and physical needs of each child. A warm and supportive atmosphere that allows each child the freedom to develop at his or her own pace. To maintain a safe and secure setting in which children learn to respect others as well as themselves, and in the process, develop a strong sense of self-worth. Education begins at birth… and never ends. If a child's developmental needs are met, children will be able to maximize their potentials, whatever they may be. Montessori is a comprehensive educational approach from birth to adulthood based on the observation of a child's needs in a variety of cultures all around the world. The Montessori environment contains specially designed, manipulative "materials for development" that invite children to engage in learning activities of their own individual choice. Under the guidance of a trained teacher, children in a Montessori classroom learn by making discoveries with the materials, cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.
