"We know how to find pearls in the shells of oysters, gold in the mountain, and coal in the bowels of the earth, but we are unaware of the creative nebulae that the child hides in himself when he enters this world to renew mankind."
Maria Montessori


The education of the whole child is the primary goal of New World Montessori.  Each dimension of the child's personality is considered of equal value. 

We seek to assist each child in the unfolding process by which he/she can become a happy, responsible and creative human being. 

The learning environment is loving, stimulating, and non-competitive. It is an atmosphere which fosters
  • joy of learning
  • positive self-concept
  • independence
  • concentration
  • order
  • creative intelligence
  • scientific curiosity
  • respect of others
  • cosmic awareness


The classroom is equipped with Montessori materials in the following areas:
  • Practical Life
  • Sensory Perception
  • Mathematics
  • Reading Readiness
  • Language Development
  • Writing
  • Social Studies
  • Music/Movement
  • Science
  • Art

The educational program is further enriched by the inclusion of:
  • Creative Dramatics
  • Multicultural experiences
  • Classroom visits from senior citizens, youth groups, and other community resource persons
  • Field Trips
  • Cooking
  • Foreign Languages
  • Contemporary, creative educational materials and activities
  • Pre-computer skills
  • Sign language
As a natural extension of our preschool program, we have set up a toddler session.  The aim of this program is to provide toddlers with early learning and socialization experience to insure readiness for the preschool program. 

New World Montessori was founded by a group of parents and teachers interested in providing quality education for young children.  Its initial funding was provided by personal loans and donations.  The ongoing operating capital comes from tuition and fundraising events.
