Philosophy:
• The goal of Montessori education is to foster autonomous, competent, responsible, adaptive citizens who are lifelong learners and problem solvers.
• The individual is considered as a whole. The physical, emotional, social, aesthetic, and cognitive needs and interests are inseparable and equally important.
• Respect for oneself, others, the environment, and life is necessary to develop a caring attitude toward all people and the planet.
• Learning occurs in an inquisitive, cooperative and nurturing atmosphere. Students increase their own knowledge through self- and teacher-initiated experiences.
• Learning takes place through the senses. Students learn through repeated use of hands-on materials and by interacting with others. These experiences are precursors to the abstract understanding of ideas.

Method:

• A sense of community is fostered in classrooms composed of mixed-age groupings.
• There is a balance of freedom and responsibility in the classroom.
• Classrooms are child-centered.
• Materials and classrooms are structured to help develop a sense of order, concentration, coordination, and independence.
• There is an abundance of materials to meet the needs of many developmental levels.
• The materials are sequenced from simple to complex and are presented in the classroom in a logical order throughout the year.
• There is a quiet busy tone.

Two teachers are present in every classroom with at least one teacher certified in Montessori methods in addition to meeting the state’s required certification. In most classrooms both teachers are Montessori certified, predominantly by the American Montessori Society.
