“My vision of the future is no longer of people taking exams and proceeding from secondary school to University but of passing from one stage of independence to a higher one, by means of their own activity and effort of will.”
Dr. Maria Montessori
Since 1991, Montessori Children’s Community has been dedicated to the enrichment of children. Based on the philosophy and methodology of Dr. Maria Montessori, Montessori Children’s Community started with a Children’s House program. Over the past 22 years, under the watchful eye of School Head, Terri Modic, MCC has carefully developed each program. Today we offer a morning and afternoon Children’s House program, a Lower Elementary Program, an Upper Elementary Program, and a Middle School Program.
Our curriculum is continuous from Children’s House through 8th Grade. The curriculum at each level builds on the skills and knowledge acquired in the previous years. We believe that a child maximizes his/her potential growth by completing each program through 8th grade.
We are a strong community of families and staff dedicated to providing the best education possible for every child. When it is time for our students to leave our “community” and attend other schools, they are prepared academically and are also socially and emotionally confident. Being part of a nurturing community has allowed our students to develop strong interpersonal skills, moral awareness, and a sense of commitment to making a global contribution. Our programs allow children “to learn how to learn“. It is through the completion of each program that children can get the full benefit of a Montessori Children’s Community education!
In the next few pages you will get an overview of our programs. Please keep in mind that we strongly recommend a first hand observation of our classrooms. If you have questions after reading through our program information, please contact us directly.
Montessori felt this was the time when a child has the greatest ability to learn. We offer multi-age classrooms for ages 2 years 7 months through 6 years. The Extended Day or Kindergarten year is the culmination of this program.
