As a nineteenth century physician and scientist, Maria Montessori created a method of education that has proved timeless.  We are living her vision.

Thank you for visiting the Preschool Program at Park View Montessori School.

We hope that you noticed the following from your observation.

  • a clean, well organized, safe environment
  • a group size of 20 children with 2 adults
  • tables, chairs, and rug area arranged for social interplay
  • five distinct areas to the environment:
    • Practical Living – including water activities, art, snack table, and small muscle exercises
    • Sensorial – Montessori equipment that develops the senses
    • Math – ranging from counting through the decimal system
    • Language – reading and writing exercises
    • Cultural Subjects – History, Geography, and Science
  • materials that aid in cognitive development rather than toys that entertain
  • a mixed age group of 3-6 year olds
  • children given the freedom to move and make choices
  • children taking work from the ordered shelves and returning it to its proper place
  • adults showing the children how to use a piece of unfamiliar material
  • adults moving away from the child after a presentation to create independence in the child
  • confident and happy children that are treated with respect
