For over 15 years Absorbent Minds has been offering exceptional childcare and the very best Montessori education for children aged 18 months to 6 years. Our school is community of students who are excited to learn, a place where open communication between teachers and parents is respected, engaged and dedicated teachers nurture the love of learning and a stimulating and challenging curriculum encourage students to thrive.
Our programs inspire and promote intellectual curiosity, creativity and individual growth through the integration of academics, arts, athletics, community service and leadership.
Absorbent Minds Montessori School’s approach to education is centered around the following core values, which guide our interactions with children every day:
Our teachers respect each child as a unique individual. We view children as naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully-prepared learning environment.
We understand that not all children learn at the same pace. The Montessori curriculum is personalized to the needs of the student, which leads to children feeling confident in their abilities.
Independence and competence lead to self-confidence — these are the first steps in developing creative thinkers and confident learners. These skills are nurtured and developmentally in all programs through hands-on learning experiences and guided practice for mastery.
Character development is a central focus within the curriculum. Peace and conflict resolution are practiced daily as children learn to be part of a warm, respectful and supportive community.
Students are supported in becoming active seekers of knowledge. Education should be the lighting of a spark – igniting of a passion – from within. Children learn through hands-on activities and experiences, not through rote memorization.
It is a joy to watch our student’s blossom into the creative, confident and compassionate young adults.
Guided by the Montessori philosophy, our mission is to provide a caring school community that nurtures the child’s natural curiosity for learning and supports the full development of his academic, social, artistic, physical and life skills. Our vision is to cultivate a natural desire to learn and to inspire children to realize their full potential.
