Your child at Living Montessori Education Community is guided in the development of the "whole child." This maximizes young children's full potential by unfolding the mystery of their authentic self. They experience their intrinsic value, cultivate an immense love for learning and gain practical life skills. Your child will be nurtured to become autonomous, respectful, responsible and capable with sound, internally-directed discipline.
Your child learns freedom with guidance
Your child is a unique individual deserving utmost respect, honor and care. Each child has innate social, physical and intellectual capacities that can be developed within an atmosphere encouraging self-paced learning and exploration, supporting individuation and allowing children to develop their own essential nature. Our approach to education and care is aligned with the Montessori Philosophy.
Your child is given freedom with guidance in our carefully planned curriculum and prepared environment. This is an essential element in the Montessori environment. Children are free to choose materials that are meaningful to them. Meaningful activities capture the children's attention as long as they correspond to the child's inner needs. As a result, children enjoy real, sequential, hands-on experiences at Living Montessori. Your child is immersed in surroundings and activities that can be seen, heard, smelled, felt and experienced at the child’s level of understanding. We respect their choices so they may begin to experience life as powerful and curious individuals. Your child's input is valued and incorporated into our curriculum so we can create environments that are meaningful and irresistible.
In your child, you can expect to see growth in the following ten areas of development supported by the Montessori Philosophy and Method:
- A joy of learning
- Learning through discovery
- Attachment to reality
- Love of order
- Ability to choose
- Enjoyment of quiet/spirituality
