Our Philosophy

Lighthouse Montessori is dedicated to and rooted in the philosophy and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori. Through her life work as a physician and anthropologist, she established many revolutionary educational premises.

Lighthouse Montessori School's method is based on respect of the individual child and his/her individual timetable for growth and development. Each day we strive to:

  1. Awaken a love of learning, a passion for knowledge, and a joy of creativity in each student.
  2. Provide a peaceful, secure, prepared environment where children long to be.
  3. Help children discover their abilities, find their independence and develop their self confidence.
  4. Foster a strong sense of self, respect for others and an ability to work as part of a group.
  5. Develop a strong academic foundation and a repertoire of life skills in each of our students.
  6. Create and provide programs which will heighten a child's development through the processes of exploration and discovery with concrete materials, while nurturing a natural curiosity and a love of learning.
  7. Provide a reliable source of care, support, information and training for families.

Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.
