Welcome to Meyer Montessori, a school that nurtures and develops the “whole child” both developmentally as well as academically. Let the journey begin!
I am honored to be the new principal at Meyer Montessori! I have passion for teaching and for early childhood education. I believe in nurturing the “whole child” and creating learning experiences where students can explore and learn. Meyer School has had a wonderful tradition of educating students in a nurturing community. We will continue to honor those traditions through the new learning of the Montessori model. I look forward to meeting you and working together to provide the very best learning opportunity for your child. We will nurture your child’s social and academic development in a caring, safe environment.
Meyer Montessori provides a unique learning experience for all students. Our educational environment is built around a classroom community of early learners. Multi-age grouping (ages 3-5) allows students to work at their own developmental level and select their journey for learning. We believe that all students are gifted, and together we nurture each student’s individual learning needs by offering a multi-sensory approach to teaching and learning.
We nurture the “whole child” by providing a curriculum that focuses on practical life skills, grace and courtesy, sensory studies, cultural studies, geography, mathematics, reading and writing development, and the arts. Learning occurs in the most natural environment where students will have multiple opportunities to explore, create, and personalize their learning.
Our school community is inclusive and provides learning experiences that will help guide our students to become independent learners, higher-level thinkers, and will make learning come alive by participating in real life learning experiences. The students at Meyer Montessori are intrinsically motivated to succeed and learn. Learning occurs through a naturalistic approach by having students experience natural and logical consequences as they develop as leaders within their learning community.
Parents are an integral part of our school. Families are encouraged to be active participants in their child’s educational journey. As a learning community, parents will be expected to learn side-by-side with their child as well as support their child as they grow socially, developmentally, and academically.
Our goal is to create a solid foundation for learning that nurtures your child’s academic growth and social development. Thank you for visiting our website and learning about how special and unique our school is. We are excited to have you be a part of our learning community.
