“Our care of the children should be governed not by the desire to ‘make them learn things’, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within them the light which is called intelligence.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori
At MMS, we use your child’s curiosity and excitement to help him or her discover the world, learn to solve problems, and gain confidence, independence and pride. The Montessori Cosmic Curriculum invokes wonder and our prepared Montessori environment encourages your child to be involved and challenged by the things around them.
In our classrooms and methods, everything is geared to your child’s needs. The children develop a community life through their sense of ownership and pride. Along with socialization, they develop an awareness of and sensitivity to each other on a daily basis. Classrooms possess an atmosphere of warmth and relaxation.
MMS teachers are keen observers and are alert to the subtle changes in your child’s progress or mood. Our Directress’s and Educational Assistant’s roles are to maximize your child’s curiosity and wonder to develop their love of learning.
At MMS, we guide the children’s learning through age appropriate activities, unique Montessori methods and materials that will challenge and develop their abilities. Dr. Montessori’s method recognizes “sensitive periods” in a child when they can absorb information from an enriched hands-on environment provided to them. Each child develops within phases that our experienced Directresses’ are trained to recognize and manage.

WILL WRIGHT – Video game pioneer, creator of the Sims
The videogame innovator says Montessori was the “imagination amplifier” that prepared him for creating The Sims, Sim City, Spore and Super Mario Brothers. “SimCity comes right out of Montessori… It’s all about learning on your own terms.”
