Our curriculum provides sound academic background for the establishment of critical thinking, problem solving and cooperative learning skills with enrichment programming in music and foreign language. Our goal is to support the development of each child in all areas – academically, socially, physically, and emotionally in an effort to educate the “whole child.” Montessori The philosophy of the Montessori method is first and foremost to respect the child. Over a century ago, Dr. Maria Montessori became Italy’s first female physician. Her focus soon shifted to better understanding the learning process of children. The Montessori method of education developed based upon Montessori’s clinical observations of children and the ease at which they naturally learn. Montessori recognized that young children possess a remarkable ability to absorb the world around them. Spruce Tree Montessori School is true and consistent with the Montessori method. The uniqueness of each child is emphasized and fostered in our well-prepared classrooms, which are designed to promote the development of emotional, physical, intellectual and social needs. One of the most distinguishing features of the Montessori method is its extensive use of manipulative items. Our classrooms are filled with materials that encourage a natural curiosity among children who are eager to choose activities in all areas of our curriculum. The result is confident, happy children that carry a love of learning with them for a lifetime. We pride ourselves on providing a traditional Montessori program to families and their children in our community.
