The basic aim of Metro East Montessori School is, in the words of Maria Montessori, "to help the child to help himself." In preparing an environment that provides for the child's inner needs, it is hoped he will be enabled to fulfill his highest potential as an integrated personality.
Why Choose Montessori?
Enrollment in a Montessori program offers a number of advantages for both children and parents:
- The school’s unique learning environment challenges children in ways other schools cannot.
- Children receive individualized attention that allows them to progress at a pace appropriate to their skills and maturity.
- Experiences outside the classroom are as important a part of the child’s education as experience inside.
