​​Merced Montessori

School

  wE BELIEVE IN DEVELOPING THE WHOLE CHILD BY ENCOURAGING INDEPENDENCE, COORDINATION, EMPATHY TOWARD OTHERS, AND HELPING CHILDREN BECOME MORE AWARE OF THEIR ENVIERNMENT AND TO BEGIN TO REALIZE THAT THEY ARE A PART OF A LARGER COMMUNITY. THIS HAS BEEN OUR PILOSOPHY SINCE MERCED MONTESSORI SCHOOL FIRST OPENED ITS DOORS IN 1978.
​   wE BELIEVE THAT A CHILD FEELS GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES WHEN THEY HAVE MASTERED THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT, AND FEELS EMOTIONALLY AND SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE IN SCHOOL, COMMUNITY AND FAMILY.

   wE FEEL THAT A CHILD IS POSITIVELY MOTIVATED TO BE COMPETENT INDEPENDENT, CREATIVE AND LOVING.  A CHILD SEE'S THE WORLD AROUND THEM WITH WONDER AND AWE. WE BELIEVE IN ENCOURAGING THEIR NATURAL CURIOUSITY.

    OUR PURPOSE IS TO FACILITATE A SENSE OF INTELLECTUAL AND PHYSICAL COMPETENCE AND OF SOCIAL AWARENESS AND SKILLS.

"The child is truly a miraculous being, and this should be felt deeply the  educator."    -Maria Montessori
