Our Mission & Philosophy
Our purpose is to offer a Montessori-based early childhood education to children from all backgrounds in a safe, nurturing environment designed to encourage independence. We provide our students with a solid educational foundation and foster their innate enthusiasm for learning.
Pennington Montessori School
It is our belief that a child’s most significant learning takes place from birth to age 6—a stage Maria Montessori referred as “the absorbent mind.” We believe that learning ideally takes place in an environment that allows children to explore abstract concepts through hands-on experiences. Our teaching method is a child-centered approach that utilizes ongoing observation by the teacher to determine and respond to individual needs. This maximizes each child’s academic and personal success.
Designed to Encourage Independence
Our teaching method is a child-centered approach that utilizes ongoing observation by the teacher to determine and respond to individual needs.
We consider each child unique, and that children at this age develop and progress at their own pace. We treat each child with respect, grace and courtesy and encourage our students to do the same in their interactions with others.
We see a child’s education as the result of many influences, including teachers, parents, peers and the natural world. To this end, we place a strong emphasis on building the support and direct involvement of our parents, both in and out of the classroom.
We provide a solid educational foundation in a safe, nurturing environment to foster the enthusiasm for learning that is innate in every child.
Child development is our highest goal and our staff is dedicated to help your child thrive. Come join our team!
As the child develops his inner self, a love of life and learning follows naturally and becomes a building block for a lifetime of learning.
