As a Montessori school we are proud to follow the philosophies of Dr. Maria Montessori. Our concern is for the child's total development. His intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development cannot be separate. All of these areas demand attention--this is basic to the Montessori philosophy of education. The child who has had the benefit of a Montessori education is better prepared for life. He has acquired a positive self-image, independence, self-assurance, and a joy for the learning experience, all of which he will carry through his lifetime.
Our teachers are certified, trained in the Montessori philosophy of education and are dedicated to helping each child achieve his full potential.
In the Absorbent Mind, Dr. Montessori wrote, "The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when man's intelligence; the full totality of his psychic powers....At no other age has the child greater need of an intelligent help, and any obstacle that impedes his creative work will lessen the chance he has of achieving perfection".
Parents choose to send their children to the Laren Montessori School because it offer quality education and opportunity for growth. The philosophy of the school emphasizes respect for the individuality for each child. Our aim is to help him achieve his full potential, and emerge as a happy, confident, individual.
There is no substitute for quality education and we are here to serve those who are seeking the very best. You can give your child no greater gift than a sound foundation for a lifetime of building.
