About

Our Philosophy

University Montessori School devotes itself to the total child; him or her emotional, social, intellectual, and physical well-being. A child-centered classroom is the basis of the Montessori approach. In each prepared environment, the child has the opportunity to progress at his or her own rate and reach the potential that each child carries within him or her. Through the use of the materials in the classroom and the careful guidance of the Montessori teacher, the child has a successful classroom experience. One success builds upon another thus increasing self-esteem and self-confidence. By combining age groups in the preschool, transitional, and kindergarten class, the children develop a sense of community. The younger children teach the older children patience and empathy and give them a feeling of competency. The older children provide the younger children with role models and assistance with their work and classroom adjustment giving them a chance to practice leadership roles. Through individual and group activities and class routine, the child experiences decision making, concern for his or her and others rights, independent thinking, and personal responsibility.

Our purpose is to help develop the full potential inside each child. We want each child to acquire the skills necessary to become a competent and capable student.

Our goal is to provide each child with a positive and productive experience in preschool. Through the use of the materials in the classroom and the careful guidance of the Montessori teacher, the child has a successful classroom experience. One success builds upon another thus increasing self-esteem and self-confidence. Through individual and group activities and class routine, the child experiences decision making, concern for his or her and others rights, independent thinking, and personal responsibility. All of this leads the child to feel they are an active and important part of his or her school community and his or her own unique learning experience.
