We Make the Difference
Whittier Montessori is an authentic Montessori school. An authentic Montessori school is not a day care drop off factory. At our school you will find age appropriate self-correcting learning materials, teachers not only trained in state-mandated courses but also trained as Montessori teachers which usually requires an additional 2 years of training. Lastly you will find school leadership solely focused on providing a completely safe and warm environment for your child to develop his/her academic potential at an individual pace. In a Montessori environment, children learn by exploring and manipulating specially designed materials. Each material teaches one concept or skill at a time, and lays a foundation from which students can comprehend increasingly abstract ideas. Children work with materials at their own pace, repeating an exercise until it is mastered. The teacher may gently guide the process, but her goal is to inspire rather than instruct. Throughout the classroom, beautifully prepared, inviting curriculum areas contain a sequential array of lessons to be learned. As students work through the sequence, they build and expand on materials and lessons already mastered. And all the while they are developing qualities with which they will approach every future challenge: independence, creative thinking, and satisfaction in a job well done.
