Mission Statement


Our mission in education is to promote learning through a spirit of cooperation and mutual respect in a non-competitive atmosphere as we advance each child to self-reliance and independence. In doing so, we are fulfilling Dr. Montessori's philosophy of education: that each child is what the unseen adult will become.
