Mission Statement

In accordance with the philosophy and pedagogical methods of Maria Montessori, the Montessori Country Day School community, consisting of teachers, staff and parents, makes it their goal to provide quality, child-centered, individualized education for children ages 12 months through 12 years. We all work together to develop responsible, critical-thinking, confident, powerful, and caring members of society. Through the manipulation of hands-on materials, students develop independence, confidence, self-direction, self-discipline, a positive attitude toward school and a life-long love of learning. Children enjoy freedom of movement and choice within a well-planned, low pressure, child-paced, prepared environment. This environment, designed with clear and carefully defined limits, meets the needs of a multi-aged, heterogeneous grouping of students.
