What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

Greene Towne Montessori School follows the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori, and pioneering Italian physician. In the specially prepared environment of the Montessori classroom, children learn by using manipulative materials designed specifically for their young minds and bodies. The wide variety of flexible materials promotes a logical progression of cognitive development, motor skills and social interaction at each child’s individual pace. The Montessori program is designed to encourage and enhance a child’s natural love of learning and discovery and serves the needs of the whole child, emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually.

What is your mission statement?

Greene Towne Montessori School instills in young children an understanding of learning as a personal process, a sense of agency in building self and community, and the joy of possibility.

“I can do it!”
