- Community Montessori can be for every child, but may not be for every family. We offer a comprehensive educational approach that is centered around each individual learner and partnering in his/her continued growth in connecting knowledge for lifelong learning.
- Under guidance, children and teens learn by making discoveries and asking questions, all the while cultivating concentration, motivation, selfdiscipline, and a love of learning. Our beliefs about learning are progressive and based on current research about how we learn and conceptualize new information. Families should not choose Community Montessori as an educational option if you are looking for a "quick fix" or are interested in outsourcing education. Families that commit to being involved in learning, modeling that learning happens all the time and everywhere, and want to be a partner in the growth of their child will find the most success at Community Montessori.
- Early Education children (including kindergarten) ages three through six come together in this homelike environment to learn by interacting with one another and educational materials. They are guided in this process by caring adults with extensive training in early childhood development. Content is presented on an individual basis upon readiness with a focus on independence, concentration, coordination, and a sense of order.
- Elementary Program (1st - 6th grade) Compassionate educators support children ages six through twelve in creating dynamic learning environments in which they feel empowered to engage in endless content areas based on their interests. The day includes a combination of childled and adult directed activities to encourage ownership and a sense of community.
- Teen`s Program (7th - 12th grade) Learning should be meaningful and purposeful. Respectful adults (Advisors) support teens twelve through eighteen years old, in becoming reflective learners who are willing to take risks and ask questions that encourage thought and the attainment of knowledge. This program allows teens to set specific academic, moral/emotional/social, and career goals to encourage life long learning skills. Because of the unique nature of our Teen`s Program, teens cannot apply after 10th grade year.
