A Community-Based Approach to Learning

Community of Children

The classroom community is structured developmentally, so that children of different ages share the same classroom, and are encouraged to collaborate and help each other.

Montessori Teacher

Prepared Environment

The Montessori learning environment is thoughtfully conceived and painstakingly prepared with specialized materials that encourage children to learn through hands-on experiences.
