The Montessori Discovery Center Difference
Our school is guided by the following principles:
- Building confidence and happiness through the love of learning;
- guiding our children to be caring, socially responsible citizens of their classroom, community and world; and
- educating the whole child in a safe and loving family oriented environment.
The Montessori approach creates freedom in a positive environment. The child will build on successful experiences through order, respect, and self-discipline, giving them the tools to utilize their full potential. At Montessori Discovery Center, we specialize in a calm, loving, and unhurried environment where children can discover their world through their own active involvement. This philosophy fosters a strong base for self-confidence, success, and emotional and academic growth.
Each material is introduced to the child at the appropriate time. The child is allowed to structure their work time as they wish, choosing to work with any materials already familiar to them.
A variety of learning implements are contained within the classroom, from practical life jobs, sensorial work, art and library areas, to math and language shelves as well as rich science materials. Care of classroom animals, gardening, and cooking are also a part of the classroom experience.
