The mission of the Montessori Community School is to provide a rich, individualized educational experience, which guides and nurtures the natural unfolding of the whole individual and inspires a lifetime love of learning and peace.
The Montessori Community School has been established to encourage and promote the intellectual, physical and social development of children. The Montessori philosophy emphasizes the development of the child in a carefully prepared environment. A prepared environment is one in which the child is able to develop freely at his or her own pace, unhindered in the spontaneous unfolding of his or her natural capacities. This occurs through the manipulation of a graded series of self-correcting materials designed to stimulate the senses and eventually one’s thinking, leading from perception to intellectual skills. Responsible freedom and inner self-discipline are encouraged. The joy of learning is emphasized and the child is helped to develop a positive self-image.
