At Garden Montessori School, a child learns the joy of learning, an education that lasts a lifetime. Based on the Montessori philosophy, Garden Montessori School is designed to give each child a structured environment where he can develop at his own pace. By working with his world, a child has real-life experiences that lead to abstract understanding. Creative materials like sandpaper letters and moveable numbers make fundamentals clear and graspable. Practical life projects help him understand himself and others, learn self-control and consideration. Adventures with art, music, history, science, and geography offer the excitement of exploration and discovery. The goal of the Garden Montessori School and the Montessori philosophy is to build a foundation for a lifetime of creative learning in the child; to develop the characteristics of responsibility, initiative, independence, and self-confidence. The child learns persistence, a sense of order, the ability to concentrate, and develops an increased curiosity. In total, a positive attitude toward exploration, discovery, and learning. Children are led to become acquainted with themselves, to learn what they can do and to take pride in their achievements.
