The Association Montessori International (AMI-USA) highlights several core principles integral to the success of Montessori education:

1. Movement and Learning: At Greece Montessori School in Rochester, NY, we recognize and research confirms the close link between movement and learning in young children. Our classrooms are designed to encourage spontaneous movement, allowing children to explore their environment freely while pursuing their interests under the gentle guidance of their teacher. This fosters natural interaction among peers within the classroom community.

2. Mixed-Age Groups: Our mixed-age classrooms support the holistic development of children by enabling interactions with peers of varying ages. Older children serve as mentors, engaging in advanced academic pursuits while embodying responsibility and respect. Younger children learn from their older peers, fostering a sense of community and appreciation for individual roles.

3. Unique Developmental Process: Every child undergoes a distinct developmental journey. Through attentive observation, our teachers identify each child's readiness for new experiences and tailor their guidance accordingly. We prioritize nurturing curiosity over anxiety when challenges arise, fostering a positive learning environment. 

4. Mastery of Environment: Our classroom experiences empower children to master their environment, promoting independence and responsibility. Daily activities, such as tidying up and caring for plants, instill confidence and deepen connections within the classroom community.

5. Individualized Learning: Learning materials in our classrooms allow children to progress at their own pace. With self-correcting materials and teacher support, students develop patience, logical thinking skills, and a sense of accomplishment as they navigate their learning journey.

"Education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment."

A fun day at the ballpark!
June 30th, 2024
We had such a great time at the Red Wings game! It was a perfect day to be outside; we sat in the sun, ate popcorn and ice cream, and cheered the Red Wings to victory! The stadium had super heros, a bounce house, and our favorite mascots. There was lots to do and enjoy together. Thanks everyone who came out for the fun! READ MORE
