Middle Creek Montessori Offers a Unique Educational Opportunity for Children Age
Maria Montessori often spoke of the importance of "the prepared environment." At Middle Creek Montessori we have taken that to heart. We believe that the creation of a learning space for the developing child includes everything from architectural elements and pure, environmentally-friendly building materials to the warm smiles of our loving teachers.
We believe architecture is a vital foundation for learning because children are known to absorb every nuance of their environment. Fine architecture can be viewed as ¿beautiful expressions of the spirit. Facilities are child-size and child-friendly to foster independence, confidence and self-esteem. Through constant exposure to a high quality environment, a child will grow to unconsciously appreciate, long for, and thus attract or be able to create, the highest standards for tomorrow's world.
Nature is consistently honored in our school. Outside, we encourage interaction with nature through our vegetable and flower gardens, brook, fields and farm. Inside, the children are surrounded by natural wood architectural elements and furniture; ample windows which invite showers of sunshine into each room; pictures and murals of nature; and an indoor greenhouse. Learning is supported and enhanced in an environment of beauty and nature.
Independence and passion for learning is supported by beautiful, high-quality learning materials. Our materials are designed to teach basic reading, writing and math skills as well as fundamental neurological organizational processes important for all types of learning. Bright, colorful lessons are placed in strategic areas for maximum use and exposure. The joyful hum of the classroom during the day is proof that children are happy when in a loving, supportive environment engaging in purposeful play.
