We seek to provide an environment with loving Christian teachers that help enforce Christian principles. We strive to teach a combination of Montessori philosophy and Biblical principles that will lead a child to academic and spiritual excellence.
We believe that “No human being is educated by another person. She must do it herself or it will never be done. A truly educated individual continues learning long after the hours and years she spends in the classroom because she is motivated from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge. We believe that the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill the child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but to cultivate her own natural desire to learn.
The habits and skills which a child develops in a Montessori class are good for a lifetime. They will help him work more effectively, no matter where he goes. If he is in a stimulating environment, whether at home or at school, his self-education –which is the only real education—will continue (Wolfe)
Behavior of the Children
Dr. Maria Montessori described the classroom as always having a busy hum of activity because the use of the materials involves many motions-walking, carrying, pouring, speaking and particularly the constant using of hands. All activity, however, is guided by a respect for the teacher, a respect for the work of others, and the respect for the materials themselves. Dr. Montessori never equated goodness with silence and immobility. Self-discipline, she felt, should be acquired gradually through absorption in meaningful work. When a child becomes interested in a particular classroom activity, his behavior almost always matures. If a child misbehaves in a Montessori classroom, the teacher usually helps him to select work which will more fully absorb his attention.
