Clay Montessori School is where your child will develop social skills and interpersonal relationship skills; where he or she will develop the necessary introspection for critical self-assessment and build self-confidence in his or her abilities to absorb and learn the primary education curriculum, in particular, and develop the confidence necessary in society in general.
Although all areas of the curriculum are important, Clay Montessori School places a strong emphasis on math and science, language and arts and social development. We generally accept three year olds into our programs, but the occasional, mature, 2 and 1/2 year old may be considered on an individual basis. Our goal is to equip your child, from the very beginning, with the skills and work ethic to perform at the highest level, not just at Clay Montessori School, but throughout your child's entire educational career.
Additionally, Clay Montessori School recognizes and respects the uniqueness of each child. Clay Montessori School's primary mission is to foster a love of learning in each student. Our curriculum skillfully weaves artistic and practical disciplines into everyday academics. Students learn to follow their curiosity, to think creatively, and to work both independently and cooperatively with others.
We celebrate diversity and strive to instill integrity, compassion and confidence in each child. We give each child support and encouragement to become his or her own unique self.
Through project-based learning, Clay Montessori School students tackle academic curriculum in ways that are engaging, meaningful, adaptable to a variety of learning styles and fun.
We are prepared to meet the educational needs of all pre-school children.
