As a LEED certified/Green school it is the goal of Pennington Montessori to provide its students with the optimal environment that is conducive to learning. We strive to help children make healthy choices when it comes to hygiene, fitness and what they choose to put into their bodies for fuel. We emphasize physical activity by taking time for vigorous outdoor playground activity every day that the weather permits or running in our considerable indoor open space! We believe a fit body is essential to a healthy mind. Exercise promotes lean muscled bodies and fit bodies are ready to learn! Healthy food choices are stressed through in class food preparation and special guests who highlight the importance of nutrition from an early age.
Learning in a secure environment allows our children to concentrate on the exploration of their surroundings knowing that they will always be well cared for. To this end we have partnered with local officials and trained professionals to be sure that our facility has up to date measures in place to provide that peace of mind. Faculty and staff are First Aid and CPR trained, cameras monitor the grounds and visitors are vetted as they walk through the front door. Though security is always high on our list of our adult priorities, children are able to learn in an environment that allows them to still maintain their innocence and sense of wonder.
