Strongbridge Montessori School provides a strong, Montessori-based education for children as young as 2.5 through turning 6 years old during the school year. During her extensive early childhood education research, Dr. Montessori discovered that when children are allowed to learn through a prepared environment, they are capable of acquiring many skills, such as language arts, including reading, early math and science, as well as geography and arts and music. The child chooses their own activities from the didactic materials carefully designed by Dr. Montessori to be self-correcting and informative. Teachers act as a guide to introduce concepts to children and to urge them onward progressively. Subject areas include self-care, respect for others, human development and opportunities for outdoor free play. A typical 3-year-old student reads 3-letter phonetic words, can do simple math, and can identify the continents of the world. We also have monthly field trips throughout the community. Strongbridge strives to help the child establish a strong sense of themselves as productive members of society.
Read what our parents have to say:
"When my family moved to the area, I visited numerous preschools, but none provided the emphasis on education, safety, and independence that I wanted for my daughter. Then I found Strongbridge Montessori School. After observing Hilary, Layla, and Charity with the children, I signed up right away. It has proven to be the best decision! I am amazed daily by the things my daughter is learning. Math, reading, geography, arts... and the best part is that she loves school! This positive attitude toward learning coupled with the social skills that my daughter develops in the classroom and on the playground each day are invaluable! I will certainly be sending my son as well... Thank you Strongbridge!!" - JR (Mckinleyville)
