What is Montessori?
A Montessori classroom environment invites children to learn through independence and choice. The classroom is prepared for children to explore practical life activities, their senses, language or reading, math, art, and sciences through hands on learning.
In an authentic Montessori classroom, movement is built into the the work, and into the lessons so that children do not spend long periods of time sitting still. Children are guided to work, given lessons, and are encouraged to continue practicing independently until the skill is understood or mastered. The teacher will then give them lessons on the next level of work.
About our school
Our classroom at Northern Star Montessori is designed to provide children with the opportunity to receive an individualized education, develop internal motivation, establish a solid foundation for learning, build confidence, and to create a love of learning.
Outdoor exploration is also very important for social development, large motor skills, and confidence in problem solving. We spend at the least 1 hour outside a day for the full time program, and ideally 2 hours when the weather permits.
Our outdoor area provides space to run, climb, use fine motor skills, be creative and explore year-round!
