We at Creative Montessori Center commit to cultivate a child s own desire to learn, motivated from within, by a natural curiosity and quest for knowledge. We approach this goal by allowing each child to experience the excitement of learning by their own choice and by helping them to perfect all their natural tools for learning. The habits and skills a child develops will last a lifetime. It is our desire to develop these habits and skills in order for children to build a respectful community.. Creative Montessori Center was founded in 1972. CMC was intended to be a premier school at a reasonable price. We have gone through many changes over the years: staff members have come and gone,locations have changed,"Specials Classes" have varied,even grade offerings have fluctuated. Through it all,CMC has stood by their promise of providing an exceptional education. The Montessori philosophy stresses the importance of community and peace. The staff at CMC is committed to helping the students to become a positive force in their environment. The children learn how to help maintain this environment: from the classroom,to the surrounding school grounds,and even to the world beyond our walls. The students of CMC are very involved in their community The Montessori enriched curriculum is organized as a spiral of integrated studies,rather than as compartmentalized subjects. In early years,lessons are introduced simply and concretely.
