Creative Minds Montessori School Philosophy

We want our students to consume the unknown like a favorite meal, savoring each bite learning to love and loving to learn new information. As adults, we face the unfamiliar by relying upon the prior knowledge, life skills, and character traits we began developing in our earliest years. Through their experiences, interactions, and environment, the child creates, in a very real sense, the adult that is to be.So as a means to nurture and enhance this process of creation, it is our mission is to provide children with experiences that help them learn to love and love to learn so that they develop into assertive adults.

As part of guiding children in their journey of lifelong learning, we want our students to be able to gather, question, evaluate, and act independently and with confidence.Therefore, with each material and strategy we introduce and implement, we seek to encourage traits of self-awareness, sociability, self-motivation, active curiosity, discipline, responsibility, and self-reliance.By allowing children to safely, explore their environment, our students will grow to rely on their acquired assets as they face new situations, in school and throughout their lives.

In effect, our mission is to afford children the cognitive, emotional, physical, and social tools that they can use to relish their meal of new information.This, then, is the heart of our philosophy: to impart knowledge and provide opportunities for children to learn practical life skills, which together support the development of the whole person and provide the foundation for purposeful, responsible, fulfilling lives.This philosophy, adapted from Montessori principles and tailored by developmental stages, is evident in all our programs, and is characterized by:

  • Respect for the child
  • A responsive environment prepared with multisensory, sequential, and self-correcting materials to support self-directed learning
  • Observant educators trained to assess learning styles, paces, and trajectories
  • Purposeful activity as the engine of whole person growth
  • Freedom of movement to interact with peers and select activities
  • Uninterrupted time to finish an activity successfully, thus building self-esteem
  • A "personal best" approach, eliminating peer-competition in favor of self-motivation
