Montessori education focuses on building independence, supporting social, emotional, and intellectual development, and fostering a love of learning.
Montessori materials are hands-on and self-correcting, so children learn from their own explorations. Strong academics are interwoven with art, music, movement, and a global peace curriculum to create a foundation for lifelong learning.
Mixed-age classrooms allow each child to progress at his or her own pace, and support social development and a strong sense of community. Children work and learn in beautiful spaces with natural materials, care for our garden, and play outside by the Deschutes River. Children help to prepare organic snacks and learn to support one another.
