Welcome to Meyer Montessori, a Montessori school community that nurtures and supports the development of the “Whole Child.”
I am honored to be your principal at Meyer Montessori! Capturing each child for the unique individual they are through the Montessori principles and philosophy is a passion of mine. I welcome you to read about our school and the many ways Meyer Montessori offers support to your child’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development.
Our prepared classroom environments are built around multi-age classroom communities, allowing students to be self-led and self-paced through the guidance, assessment, and enrichment of Montessori trained teachers. Believing that all children can succeed, we nurture each student’s individual learning needs by offering a multi-sensory approach to teaching and learning.
“Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.” – Dr. Maria Montessori
Our Children’s House (ages 3-6) focuses on building independence, focus, concentration, and initiative through interdisciplinary areas in the classroom: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, Cultural Studies, and the Arts. Through these main areas, children are supported in learning meaningful, challenging, and purposeful work in a warm, safe, and welcoming environment.
Our Elementary Program (currently ages 6-10) integrates the “Five Great Lessons,” working from larger concepts to smaller ideas and concepts, learning how each fits into the larger framework as they explore the world around them. Students learn to question and think critically while playing an active and responsible role in their academic learning.
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 learn side by side with their child, supporting the child’s growth socially, developmentally, and academically.
Thank you for visiting our website and learning about our special and unique school. We are thrilled to have you part of our Montessori learning community.
