WHILE THEIR MINDS ARE OPEN & BRIGHT
Mountain West Montessori provides elementary education (K-6) using Montessori technique to engage and educate your child while they still see the world with wonder and fascination.
Montessori Schools are uniquely designed to give children the benefit of a large, yet close-knit community. In the interest of teaching mutual respect, Montessori educators do not treat children as lesser people to be controlled, but rather as fellow humans to be respected. In a Montessori School, children have the ability to learn at the pace that works best for them to prevent gaps in their education and to reduce frustration. The Montessori learning experience, while following a curriculum and present lessons, is highly individualized, encouraging students to become engaged in learning and to pursue their passions.Explore
What makes a program Montessori?
Younger children learn from older children; older children reinforce their learning by teaching concepts they have already mastered. This arrangement also mirrors the real world, where individuals work and socialize with people of all ages and dispositions.
Students need to have time to work through various tasks and responsibilities at their own pace. This uninterrupted work time is when the building of coordination, concentration, independence and order, and the assimilation of information are able to occur.
Montessori education is well established and Montessori students are successful
