About Our World Montessori
Our World Montessori is a diverse and vibrant community of learners. Our children explore and work together in a warm and nurturing home-like environment. Our World Montessori is a thriving school serving and educating over 60 children from 18 months through kindergarten.Our program is child-centered. Children learn through the exploration of self-chosen, hands-on materials. Understanding that children learn at their own pace and have a variety of interests, AMS-credentialed Montessori teachers plan lessons based on the individual interests and readiness of the children rather than chronological age.A natural sense of wonder motivates these young learners to explore their connections to the world around them. They are learning how to get along with others as well as understanding each person’s responsibility to take care of not only themselves and their school environment, but also the wider community and our planet.
