“Education is not something which the teacher does, but it is a natural process that develops spontaneously in the human being. It is not acquired by listening to words, but by virtue of experience in which the child acts on his environment. We must offer the child the help he needs and be at his service so that he does not have to walk alone.”-Maria Montessori
To provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment which would help our children develop within themselves an excellent foundation for creative learning….to develop the basic ideas, a thirst for learning, favorable attitudes toward school, habits of concentration, of initiative, of order and of persistence.It is our goal to support and facilitate the education and development of children by stimulating the growth of each child’s Mind, Body, and Spirit according to the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. To this end, we have prepared an environment that is engaging and responsive to each child at each stage of development. Lor-Jon Montessori School is committed to excellence in education. This education is conceived in the strong implementation of “meet the child’s need first…at all times” belief. This commitment is realized with a strong partnership between school and family, for the benefit of each child.It is our objective to hire and retain only Montessori teachers who are compassionate, intelligent adults with varied interests and backgrounds who are committed to the Mission of Lor-Jon Montessori School.
