As the Director of North Bend Montessori, Inc., I have high expectations for the students that attend here. I have been fortunate enough to receive both my Primary and Elementary training in the Montessori education. I feel that it is very important children are given every opportunity for a great foundation to their education that they can use throughout their lives.
I have been involved in setting up teaching the Montessori method since 1989. During this time, I have witnessed children becoming involved in their learning and succeeding to levels that are far beyond their years. The key to a child's development/learning is a fun-filled atmosphere with materials and manipulatives that encourage them to learn in a way that comes easily to them. Learning should be fun for your child, not a chore; therefore, school becomes a joy, not a burden.
The environments in the Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten and First Grade Classes feature open-ended exercises and materials that appeal to a wide range of interests and abilities. The children choose activities based upon their interests with loving guidance from our professionally trained teachers.
