Our Vision & Objectives
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.
Emphasis is placed on:
- Freedom within limits.
- Self-directed activities allowing each child to progress at his own pace.
- Viewing the child as a whole human being; a person in his own right and with his own rights.
Metro East Montessori Parents' Group
The Montessori Parents' Group sponsors various social and fundraising events throughout the year. These are fun events that allow the parents, staff members, family, and the surrounding community to have a great time while getting to know each other and raising money for the benefit of our children.
