A Trio of Teachers

A Community-Based Approach to Learning

Community of Children

The classroom community is structured developmentally, so that children of different ages share the same classroom, and are encouraged to collaborate and help each other.

Montessori Teacher

In a Montessori classroom the teacher is an observer, follower, and guide who brings wisdom, consideration, and experience to the child’s academic, social, and intellectual exploration.

Prepared Environment

The Montessori learning environment is a thoughtfully conceived and painstakingly prepared with specially designed, concrete materials that engage the children constantly in their own learning, allowing each to learn — and to understand — by doing.
