Established in 1984, Acorn Montessori School is a community of compassionate teachers and staff providing students with a blend of love, respect, and academic excellence to foster a life-long love of learning. Children are nurtured at Acorn to develop characteristics like self-confidence, a sense of personal responsibility, and an awareness of their local and global communities.
The Montessori approach is based on the findings of child development specialist Dr. Maria Montessori. Although conceived over 100 years ago, Dr. Montessori's approach is completely aligned with the findings of current child development research. According to her, children develop in three-year cycles - birth to age 3, age 3 to 6, and age 6 to 9.
To create an educational environment sensitive to those cycles, our programs are structured around these age groups, based on the belief that learning is a 360-degree process where children learn both from their teachers and each other. Younger children look to the older ones as role models, and the self-esteem of older children grows as they become mentors and leaders in the classroom. At the conclusion of each year, the oldest third of the class moves on to the next level, giving children the opportunity to grow together and develop a strong sense of community, an arrangement that gives all children the opportunity to serve as classroom leaders at some point during the three-year cycle.
A typical class at Acorn Montessori School consists of approximately 24 children, with at least one trained Montessori (head) teacher and one or two assistant teachers.
