Needham Montessori School begins with a deep respect for children as unique individuals who have an innate desire to learn. The Montessori classroom provides the child with a environment that allows for freedom within limits and offers developmentally appropriate activities. The advancement of their social, emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual selves is our focus. We value the process of learning rather than the product.
We believe in individualizing each child’s school experience for the fullest development of their potential. Teachers present lessons one-on-one and in small groups. Children are encouraged to work independently with the materials to become self-motivated and competent learners.
Our teachers provide the opportunity for children to function in a safe and positive environment.
