Why Choose Starting Point Montessori?
Respect for the child is the cornerstone of Starting Point Montessori Center’s philosophy.
At all levels and all areas, Starting Point Montessori places the need of the child first. That is why we are so passionate about the Montessori Method. We believe that it is the most effective way to help guide our students to social, emotional and academic success.
The Montessori Method is based on careful observation of and respect for the natural development of the child. It has been carefully used in schools around the world for over 90 years. This approach recognizes that a child is more responsive to certain learning experiences at particular times within a particular plane of development.
Careful observation allows the Montessori-trained teacher to recognize these developmental periods when a child is ready for a new learning experience. The teacher can then direct the child toward materials that will challenge the child while making sure he is successful.
The teachers at Starting Point Montessori are trained Montessorians. The ability of the staff, combined with their commitment to the educational and social welfare of our students, provides an environment that promotes a life-long love of learning.
