Montessori Academy at Essrig Elementary
Montessori is an education philosophy and practice that fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children and adolescents in all areas of their development, with a goal of nurturing each child's natural desire for knowledge, understanding, and respect.
Here are some unique program elements that will be in each of our Montessori classrooms:
- Newly renovated spaces to enhance the hands-on learning
- Specially designed learning materials
- Two teachers (one primary, one assistant) specifically trained in the Montessori method of teaching
- Mixed age groups (3-, 4-, and 5-year olds)
- Self-directed education
