“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to age six. For that is the time when man’s intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed. ” ~Maria Montessori
“The significance of observation is not the imparting of information but the facilitating of discovery, helping the child to explore and to learn. We learn, we teach, we live effectively out of who we are. Who we are propels us in life. It is the nature of birds to fly, of fish to swim, and each of us is graced with a personality destiny that we must discover. And that is where we as parents and teachers best serve our children – helping them to discover who God made them to be. Observation is the key to help aid their discovery.”
— Edward Fidellow
Country Meadows Montessori School is available to pre-school children 3 years and potty trained through 2nd grade.
If you are interested in learning more about enrollment, please contact us through email at [email protected] to schedule a tour with your child. You will be able to observe our children engaged in their natural joy of learning, while developing their full potential of success!
The curriculum of Country Meadows Montessori provides interdisciplinary studies of language, creative writing, math, science, geography, history, art and physical activity. This curriculum is taught using Dr. Maria Montessori’s world-renowned “hands on” teaching method. In order to achieve these high standards for your child, we are proud to have on staff three exceptional Montessori Certified teachers and one part-time elementary teacher. Their extensive experience and Montessori training provide them with the needed insight to accommodate the individual needs of each child within a multi-age classroom.
The essence of the Montessori philosophy is to develop within the child an ingrained sense of responsibility toward themselves, society and completing a “job well done”. We here at Country Meadows Montessori feel fortunate to have offered this philosophy to our community for over 20 years and now to your child.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT: We, the team at Country Meadows Montessori Inc., are committed to designing and refining an environment that will guide the children on a path of life-long joy in learning. Another integral part of our program is to spark enthusiasm for their own unique self-construction, as well as motivating the children to fulfill their potential. Our mission is to teach and model self-respect, respect for others, and respect for the environment. The Montessori Method is the key to obtaining these goals. In developing self-respect and in respecting the rights of others, as well as developing self-discipline, the foundation is laid. The next layer is the building of self-esteem through success at developmentally appropriate work. Each exercise, sequentially building one skill upon another, fosters self confidence as an independent learner. Every exercise enhances the child’s ability to organize, refines the child’s coordination and lengthens the child’s concentration span. All these practical skills lead to an independent, joyful learner for life.
Ms. Jeanette Bostick, Directress
We respect the worth, dignity and uniqueness of each individual. We believe in an environment of collaboration and cooperation among parents, students and educators. We educate the spirit and character of the child, as well as their minds.
