“All our handling of the child will bear fruit, not only at the moment, but in the adult they are destined to become.”
– Maria Montessori
Montessori on CopperHill provides a high-quality learning environment for children under six. Our space welcomes the whole family, allowing each parent, teacher, and child to live to their fullest potential at home and in the community.
We create spaces where babies can explore and feel secure. Teachers speak in gentle tones, the daily pace is unhurried, and décor is peaceful and homelike. Each child in our care is an individual to be nurtured with affection and respect. As is customary for Montessori environments, every detail is selected with the child’s whole development in mind.
Brain development is an integral part of the Montessori program. Toddlers can learn to concentrate and focus on a task. The environment is filled with learning activities that are developmentally appropriate for toddlers. They are free to choose activities according to his/her own interests. It is our goal to meet each child’s needs and develop these skills.
As your child grows and begins to master some of the basic life and communication skills, our pre-school program will help your child develop the skills that they began to experience in our toddler room.
They will be encouraged to learn and master, fine motor skills and problem solving. We enhance the learning experience while making the process fun and entertaining.
Our kindergarten program provides our students with a strong foundation. The children will begin to form bonds and relationships with other children and learn to problem solve in a group setting.
The Montessori Method is very much alive as our children learn in a fun and creative way.
Montessori on CopperHill provides an educational setting that supports child-centered learning in a peaceful, authentic Montessori environment. To create a community of parents, children, and teachers that supports the needs of the family, is sensitive to developmental milestones and embraces the love of life-long learning.
Teachers model respect, loving kindness, and a belief in peaceful conflict resolution. Montessori students enjoy freedom within limits. Working within parameters set by their teachers, students are active participants in deciding what their focus of learning will be. Montessorians understand that internal satisfaction drives the child’s curiosity and interest and results in joyous learning that is sustainable over a lifetime. Students are supported in becoming active seekers of knowledge.
Teachers provide environments where students have the freedom and the tools to pursue answers to their own questions. Self-correction and self-assessment are an integral part of the Montessori classroom approach. As they mature, students learn to look critically at their work, and become adept at recognizing, correcting, and learning from their errors.
