About Concord Montessori
The Concord Montessori School was established in 1974, and is a member of the North American Montessori Teacher’s Association (NAMTA). We are located in Concord, Massachusetts. The school year is from September through May.
Concord Montessori School Philosophy
Our school’s philosophy is to foster independence, love of learning, and a positive sense of self in a prepared environment. Every child is encouraged to function independently at his or her own developmental rate. We welcome but do not require parent participation in the classroom.
Benefits of a Concord Montessori Education
- Children are helped along their natural path of development. Dr. Montessori believed that the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill the child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate their own natural desire to learn.
- Children develop functional independence at Concord Montessori School. We respond to a child’s call, “Help me do this myself!”
- Children develop skills for living. Children are taught an “I can do it” attitude that will ensure their future success in all aspects of their life. We nurture self confidence, self esteem, self control, the abilities to engage, concentrate, and make good choices.
- We foster a life long love of learning. Learning activities are individualized where each child engages in a learning task that particularly appeals to him, that are geared to his needs and level of readiness. Consequently, he works at his own rate, repeating the task as often as he likes, thus experiencing a series of successful achievement.
