“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.” Maria Montessori
At Abilitrees Montessori, our philosophy is concerned with the development of the total child. This includes attention to their social, cognitive, emotional, creative and physical needs with all aspects being given equal consideration.
It is our goal to help children develop a positive self-image, self-reliance and independence in a structured educational program that also encourages the creative ability of each child.
We treasure every child who walks through our doors. We encourage the recognition and appreciation of individual differences. We foster caring, consideration and respect for others, while providing opportunities for cooperation and sharing. We hope that children will become aware of themselves as individuals and as part of their community. Our philosophy extends beyond the child to the parents. We are committed to supporting good parenting. We provide on line resources on child development and good parenting skills.
The concept of family and support are highly valued. We recognize the importance of these values and strive to reflect this in our programming for both our children and our parents.
