Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Our Montessori classrooms are designed to meet the needs of all the children in the class, the teachers create and adapt the environment with this in mind. They modify the educational materials available, the physical layout, tone of the class, to best fit the needs of the children. Our Montessori teachers, who serve as observers and guides in the classroom, are all Montessori trained and certified. Many of our teachers have upwards of twenty years experience with the Montessori method.

Enrollment

Application/ enrollment process details Children are accepted into the program on the basis of readiness for school and potential for success. The admissions process consists of a parent tour, submission of an application form (non-refundable application fee), a Parent Interview and sometimes an "Audition" to see how the child fits into the classroom environment. In cases where classrooms are full, the child's name will be placed on a waiting list.
