St. Andrew's Montessori School is a full-time preschool and kindergarten for two and a half to six year old children that utilizes the philosophy and curriculum of the Montessori Method in a peaceful, non-competitive atmosphere to promote strong moral character and human values.
The Montessori Method of Education developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) is a child centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr. Montessori's method has been time tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures all over the world.
It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child: physical, social, emotional, and cognitive.
Our mission is to serve preschool and kindergarten age children, using the philosophy and curriculum of Dr. Maria Montessori. The educational environment fosters respect, cooperation, order, and choice within limits. We provide children with the opportunity to build themselves to their fullest potential. The school's peaceful and non-competitive atmosphere promotes strong moral character and human values. At this early age, the child acquires the tools necessary for critical thinking, decision making, and respect for all. Under the guidance of a Montessori trained educator at St. Andrews Montessori School, children choose what helps them to construct themselves, resulting in independence, self-esteem, and a life-long love of learning.
