At Mountain Montessori we know that establishing a strong community benefits the life of a child. We also know that creating community requires time, commitment and communication.
We BELIEVE in the importance of community so much that we work very hard at getting to know the whole family – not just the child attending the school each day. Over time we create relationships with families that last long after their time at Mountain Montessori. In fact, we often continue to support parents as their children move through the elementary years.
At Mountain Montessori we also recognize that each child is different. Each one has different needs – academic, social and emotional. In order to understand what each child needs, we depend on the input and communication from the parents. This method of working as a team in supporting growth and development of a child has proven to be highly effective. It also means that each child receives a WHOLE child approach to education where all factors of learning are taken into consideration.
Critical factors important to Mountain Montessori include:
- Focus on Family and Community
- Parent involvement
- Stay with you even after graduation
- Parent education
- A true whole child approach to education - grace and courtesy, peace, art, math, language, social and emotional development, Spanish, practical life and sensorial.
- Same two teachers – full time – every day.
