North American Montessori’s Program Philosophy
We believe the foundation for a child’s learning includes a stable and nurturing partnership between family, caregivers, the prepared Montessori environment, and the community to maximize the total development and uniqueness of each child. We have extended our belief in the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori by providing developmentally appropriate activities with a broad range of services to children and their families.
Our curriculum believes in serving the individual learning styles of children to encourage self-confidence, spontaneity, curiosity, and self-discipline. Preparing the child not for the present or immediate future but, in the vision of Dr. Montessori, for life.
We celebrate the pluralistic society we live in and serve by modifying our behaviors, attitudes, and curriculum to encourage respect, dignity, and an appreciation of diversity. We believe in life long learning and strive to establish patterns and expectations of success, a climate of overall development of the child. One that encourages creativity and self-expression. One that supports the natural curiosity in a child. One that awakens interest in self-expression and fosters a love towards the self and others.
We believe in children, the pride of our ancestors, and the dreams of our future.
