Building Our Future… From the open eyed wonder of infancy, through the toddler’s inescapable scrutiny, into those early years of concentrated purpose… … is the foundation upon which the “inner man” is firmly built. Standing upon this foundation, the elementary age child embraces the “who, what and where” in the world around him. He gathers facts and questions, “Why?” Community at Adventure Montessori Learning means sharing safe, peaceful interactions with one another. We are a family of adults and children from all over the world, brought together by a common interest in learning, inside and outside the classroom. Social interactions and academic activity characterize our indoor classrooms. Encounters with nature; the feeding and care of animals and the growing and harvesting of fruit and vegetables comprise the outdoor “classroom”. Parents, teachers and children, working together side by side, are weaving AML into a vital school community where each individual’s contribution is valued. Fun Activities for All…Families come first at Adventure Montessori. Our student curriculum is meant to be a family activity! Parent support and involvement is critical in the growth and development of children’s self esteem and academic success. And, it’s just plain fun! Montessori is also a home curriculum, a philosophy for practical living skills. We encourage families to participate in and enjoy the gardens and animals at AML.
A Montessori program is based on self-direction, non-competitive and cooperative activities that help a child develop a strong self-image, high levels of academic and social competence, and the confidence to face challenges with optimism. Encouraged to make decisions from and early age, Montessori educated children are problem solvers who can make appropriate choices, manage their time, and work well with others. They exchange ideas and discuss work freely. These positive communication skills build the foundations for negotiating new settings.
