"Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core."
- M. Montessori
The Green Mountain Montessori's mission is to provide a stimulating, caring and healthy environment that guides children to reach their fullest potential – becoming responsible, independent and creative individuals who are aware and proud of whom they are.
We follow the Montessori philosophy in order to provide an environment that fosters the child’s natural love of learning. Our mission echoes the words of Dr. Maria Montessori – "Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core". Our state's wonderful natural resources will play a prominent role in enriching this environment, fueling the child's natural desire for exploration and building respect for his/her world.
We are explicitly committed to building a diverse community that models the world we live in today – one of diverse racial, cultural and economic backgrounds. Our staff, families and neighbors will work together to build this community through a partnership that is dedicated to the development of our precious children.
