Experienced teachers and Montessori methods
Our teachers are aware of the stages of human development and ensure our curriculum is appropriate for the developmental stages of our children. Our entire staff is trained in the Montessori approach of learning. Your child will have the advantage of moving at their own pace in a relaxed and caring atmosphere.
Our classrooms are equipped with all the basic child development equipments and standard Montessori materials. These materials will guide your child in developing their sensory skills and everyday living skills. They will have the opportunity to develop skill in reading, math, science, and geography. We strive to make our program developmentally appropriate for each child.
Understanding each child's abilities
We acknowledge that children learn in different ways and at different paces.
Each child is a unique human being with unique learning styles and needs as an individual learner.
Our environment is open to children with diverse learning styles, but our primary focus will always be the well-being and best interests of our students who will thrive in our Montessori environment. In every case, we assess whether our school is able to meet a child’s needs while keeping the integrity of the classroom, and if not, we will recommend an appropriate alternative.
Open environment and open door policy
We seek to provide an open environment to share our values in a truly diverse community.
An open door policy of communication with parents is vital to running a successful program. We welcome parents to come and observe our program. All efforts will be made to communicate with parents regularly. Our policies encourage parents to be very proactive in our daily operations and their efforts will be viewed as an organizational asset. We welcome all parents to share their cultural heritage with our Montessori community.
We promote active learning (rather than passive) by encouraging spontaneous activities, hands-on learning, and moving from a concrete level of experience to the abstract.
We use the principle of “follow the child”. We understand the importance of children to pursuing areas of interest.
If a child is not internally motivated in a given area, we encourage children to take interest in that specific area.
Achievement at each level of learning leads toward placement of each child in the next phase of his or her education.
Freedom within order: We strive for a balance between freedom, order, and responsibility. To achieve developmental goals, we use the philosophy set forth by Dr. Maria Montessori.
A safe, healthy environment
The school site, and the equipment fully comply with any and all state and local ordinances and regulations, including those requirements for fire safety, building safety, and health. We have sprinkler systems with a direct alarm to the fire station. BMS is handicap accessible.
Our staff is thankful to you for the opportunity to take care of your treasures. As a student in our school, your child will be introduced to classroom materials that will aid them in developing concentration, coordination, and a sense of order, independence, a new language (Spanish), and academic skills.
