Director’s Welcome

The Montessori Center is delighted with the interest you have expressed in the school.

We believe that we offer an unsurpassed learning environment for our students.  Our school strongly emphasizes development of the basic skills (language, mathematics, history, science and culture), which are an essential foundation for higher learning, while at the same time encouraging development of the child as a responsible, resourceful, confident thinking person who is well equipped for life.

Guiding children within the Montessori environment is a challenging activity and the work we do in class is but a small part of our professional responsibility.  We want our students to enjoy school life, to achieve to the full extent of their ability and to develop particular skills and talents.

You may be assured that the staff of The Montessori Center is totally committed to the children entrusted to their care.  However, regrettably, from time to time, things do go wrong.  If you ever have cause for complaint, please do not hesitate to discuss the matter with me.

As Director, my goal is to create a school that evokes a caring, stimulating and friendly atmosphere and at the same time, is an exciting workplace for adults and children alike.

It is my sincere hope that when you visit The Montessori Center, you find what is written here is being fulfilled in practice.

Thank you for the opportunity to contribute to your child’s development.

Nancy A. Elkins, Director
