Why a Montessori Education at Alcuin?
Respect for oneself, for others, and for the classroom materials are the “ground rules” of a Montessori community. We believe with Maria Montessori that the world's future depends upon how children grow up. This philosophy serves as the cornerstone of Alcuin’s focus: commitment to the child.
We strive for a Montessori program in which a child’s needs for movement and social interaction, coupled with his equally compelling needs for order, independence and concentration, are fostered and met. Montessori-trained professionals and experienced assistants guide a child to moments of discovery that yield great joy and a sense of dignity as an independent human being.
Alcuin’s family-like atmosphere encourages strong partnerships between faculty and parents so that children can receive consistent experiences at home and school. I hope you will take every opportunity available to attend meetings and events to become familiar with the Montessori Method and the philosophy, and meet other families, faculty, and staff.
Alcuin has been offering excellence in education for over 60 years. Along with our rich history, the school has a national reputation for delivering the highest quality of Montessori education.
