"The secret of good teaching is to regard the child's intelligence as a fertile field in which
seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination."
Montessori Education for the Whole Child
We employ the Montessori Method which emphasizes the development of all facets of a child's unfolding personality - social, emotional, cognitive and physical. Our child-centered prepared environment contains a wide variety of materials from which a child may choose an activity which supports the development of the whole child. The Montessori teacher acts as a monitor and guide to encourage exploration, discover, trial, practice and success. Early manual skills that develop motor coordination lead to an understanding of weight, size, space, terminology, and other basic concepts of mathematics and language. Each achievement opens a new and exciting challenge for the child. Our environment is specially prepared to provide the child the opportunity to develop and grow to become a successful and independent thinker and seeker of knowledge.
Dr. Montessori's cosmic curriculum focuses on the interdependence of all living things.

Developing the Responsible Child
Freedom with responsibility supports the development of self-esteem, self-discipline and social skills. Awareness of and concern for the welfare of the group is an integral part of the environment. Dr. Montessori's cosmic curriculum focuses on the interdependence of all living things. Children learn that they play a role in the scheme of life and are important members within their society.
