A Start for a Lifelong Love of Learning
Northern Lights Montessori seeks to provide programs that nurture the development of the whole child. The classroom environment is designed to address the needs of critical periods in the child’s development. The child’s innate need to touch, to see, to hear, to smell and to explore is met with a variety of Montessori classroom apparatus. The child is challenged by a curriculum that prepares her for academic success while stimulating her creativity, curiosity, independence and love for learning. The child is respected as an individual by providing daily activities in the classroom that foster self-esteem, independent learning and personal achievement. The child is a valuable member of the global community by equipping her with the skills of teamwork and leadership. Through cooperative activities like music, movement, play, cooking and classroom interaction with peers, the child develops respect for others and a desire for peaceful problem solving.
