You won’t find the traditional school desks; instead children work at tables or on the floor, rolling out mats on which to work and define their work space.
Comfortable, inviting, and thoughtfully arranged, the classroom promotes Maria Montessori’s approach to learning.
Natural lighting, soft colors, and uncluttered spaces set the stage for activity that is focused and calm. Learning materials are displayed on accessible shelves, fostering independence as students go about their work. Everything is where it is supposed to be, conveying a sense of harmony and order that both comforts and inspires.
There are spaces suited to group activity, and areas where a student can settle in alone. Parts of the room are open and spacious, allowing a preschooler to lay out strands of beads for counting, or an elementary student to ponder a 10-foot-long Timeline of Life.
In this safe and empowering environment, students find joy in learning.
