About Our Center

The mission of the Montessori Center is to prepare students to be life-long learners and responsible citizens of the world community.  Through the use of Montessori methods and philosophy, an individualized approach in multi-age groupings encourages developmentally appropriate learning of academics, and social and life skills.  All children are given the freedom – in a structured environment that is nurturing, child centered and supportive – to develop their gifts and pursue their interests.


  • To promote the highest standards of academic achievement for all students;
  • To assist each child in the development of personal autonomy;
  • To demonstrate and encourage the use of effective, positive communication skills;
  • To nurture the development of self-discipline, self-control, self-confidence and positive self-esteem within each child;
  • To guide each child toward constructive decision-making and behavioral choices that demonstrate respect for self and others;
  • To foster the joy of learning within the child.
