Our Mission

At Montessori School of Cherry Creek, we believe that a child must be permitted the independence, self-discovery and freedom to learn and grow not only in academics but also physically and spiritually. Ours is a denominational school where we strive to bring cultural awareness to the children. We strive to meet the needs of each and every individual child and help it gain self control, trust and an understanding of the world. This gives the child the needed self-esteem to function at its own pace within our world.

We actively help children workout their conflicts in a positive light and lead them to an understanding of choices and consequences.We always remind ourselves where the child has been, where it is now and where it will be going.

The Child Approach

The primary goal of Montessori program is to help each child reach its full potential in diverse aspects of life. Activities promote the development of social skills, emotional growth and physical co-ordination along with cognitive preparation for future intellectual academic endeavors The holistic curriculum, under the direction of specifically prepared teachers allows a child to experience joys of learning, enjoy the process of learning and ensures development of self-esteem.

Our Staff

The staff members at Montessori School of Cherry Creek are trained in child CPR/First Aid. In addition every staff member has a minimum educational training hours during the school year All classroom directresses have Montessori Training from an approved A.M.I or A.M.S training institutes. Group leaders and assistant teachers have completed the necessary training for the position.

The classroom directresses play an unobtrusive role rather than dominant active role in the classrooms. The children are free to work at their own pace with materials of their choice either in groups or on their own. They are encouraged to teach, collaborate and help each other. The directresses rely on their observation and facilitate the learning process of individual child and groups. They encourage active, self directed learning and strike a balance between individual mastery within small groups and collaboration with the whole group community.

The Montessori Philosophy

“Scientific observation has established that 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. The task of the teacher becomes that of preparing a series of motives of cultural activity, spread over a specially prepared environment, and then refraining from obtrusive interference. Human teachers can only help the great work that is being done, as servants help the master. Doing so, they will be witnesses to the unfolding of the human soul and to the rising of a New Man who will not be a victim of events, but will have the clarity of vision to direct and shape the future of human society.”
