Our Educational Goals

The Montessori curriculum varies at the four levels of our school, but the goals are consistent throughout the programs:

  • To enter into a partnership with parents in the education of their children
  • To encourage the self-motivation and self-discipline that will lead to a lifelong pursuit of knowledge
  • To lead children to mastery of precisely identified intellectual, social, and physical skills
  • To help children develop a positive self-image as the key to the development of their full potential
  • To foster open minds, compassion, and respect for others
  • To balance self-reliance, independence, and responsible freedom with the skills of working cooperatively
  • To instill in each child a sense of duty and personal responsibility for the world in which we live
  • To spark in our children imagination, wonder, humor, and joy
