Northern Stars Montessori School & Daycare is based on the educational philosophy and academic methods of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Maria Montessori’s philosophy states that children should be free to work at their own pace with materials they have chosen, either alone or with others.
Between birth and the age of six, children are able to acquire specific skills with an ease that will never be duplicated in later life. To take full advantage of these extraordinary abilities, Northern Stars Montessori School & Daycare offers an enriched environment in which children are encouraged to explore their interests and develop their full potential by stimulating the cognitive, social, emotional, physical and creative stages of development.
In our School children’s innate zeal for learning is encouraged by allowing them opportunities to choose among an array of purposeful activities. The aim is to encourage active, self-directed learning by providing experiences contributing to the growth of confident, self-motivated, independent learners who are respectful of themselves and others. We believe that a child will feel safe, secure and happy in an atmosphere that will challenge and maximize his/her full potential.
