Teaching Philosophy

Children have an absorbent mind. They absorb knowledge from the environment without fatigue. […] This is the moment in the life of man when we can do something for the betterment of humanity and further brotherhood.” 

The child’s sensibility to absorb language is so great that he can acquire foreign languages at this age [birth to three].”

“It is interesting to notice that where life is simple and natural and where the children participate in the adult’s life, they are calm and happy.”

Maria Montessori

How we run our Montessori classroom

The Montessori classroom is an open and inviting, prepared room for children to independently learn. Teachers are there to guide and give one on one individualized lessons to support each child’s interests.

There are daily group lessons called circles, where they learn the unit of study for the month. Children participate in Class discussions, music , jobs /chores etc. our mixed age groups ages 3-5 and 5-8 provide children opportunities to mentor or be role-models. In this environment children will learn self-discipline from teachers and peers as well as accountability, responsibility, making choices, problem solving and serving as a participant in this community.

We provide a higher teacher to student ratio than required. We hire mature adults as teachers, that have previous experiences in teaching and / or raising children of their own. We excel in teaching multiple languages. We pay teachers livable wages and train and mentor each other with valuable teaching experiences.

We like to form a partnership with parents in finding the best way to help their child. We would share our experiences with “positive discipline” method, and by the parents sharing theirs, we work together to become a valuable and cohesive team that will work for the individual child’s need.

We like the children to feel that they belong and have significant contribution to their class community. We like to build thinkers and leaders; respectful and confident children that can resolve their problems with words.

We expect our students to become pillars of the community.
