Our classrooms are carefully prepared with traditional Montessori materials allowing for the harmonious balance of freedom and discipline.  Starting in the primary years, children develop foundational skills in math, science, reading, and writing.  Practical life work including snack preparation, cleaning, and plant care are practiced in each classroom.  Mixed-aged classes allow for younger children to naturally be mentored by their older peers.  The older peers naturally become the leaders and mentors to younger peers.  Teachers observe each individual students learnings and guide them on their developmental path.  Uninterrupted work cycles foster the ability to concentrate and self-discipline, essential life skills.    Love of learning, a sense of responsibility and community are the results of the prepared Montessori environment.
