At Montessori By The Sea, the concept of educating the whole child is central to everything we do. The Montessori curriculum is interdisciplinary, sequential, individualized, contextual, meaningful and holistic, and provides students with the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways. Additionally, each student participates in enrichment classes (PE, Art, Music, Foreign Language and ICT—at the Elementary level-) weekly. This further facilitates the child’s total development. We empower our students to initiate their own activities, helping them to develop self-reliance, independence and a sense of ownership of their classroom and school environment.
The best way to gain a better understanding of Montessori education is to come by and visit our campus! We are very proud of our students and school, and encourage parents to observe and see the children working and interacting in the classroom. In addition, we require that parents, preferably both, schedule a tour of the classroom and school environment to give you a feel of the philosophy as well as the warm, nurturing Montessori By The Sea environment. A positive experience for your child requires that parents and school share a common view of the purpose of education. Observations are by appointment only, so please call the school at (345) 947-0684 to schedule one. This period will give you a glimpse into a day at Montessori By The Sea, and give you a feel of the Montessori philosophy, which will allow you to see if it is a right fit for your child and your family. This is of utmost importance, as home and school must work together to optimize your child’s experiences.
