Our Montessori community is a refreshing break from conventional educational methods. We honor and respect children and their individual path to learning basic skills about the world and about themselves. We believe parents are an integral part of the process and that continued learning is important for us all.
We support children as they:
> Learn to care for themselves > Interact with the environment > Develop supportive friendships. > Work to master critical academic and social skills > Delight in learning about the world around them.
"Wow! I cannot say enough about what this school has done for both my children. The entire school community has given my children the gift of knowledge and life skills.."
"The 1st yr was a big bump where my daughter wasn’t able to focus. She struggled with transitioning and learning classroom rules. I felt so discouraged. But the teachers made all the difference. They were so open to hearing my thoughts and learning about my child through my eyes. We came up with a game plan on how to support her."
"This school is amazing. The elementary staff are wonderful. You will want to come and observe this school. Our child is in her 7th year at Keystone and is in the elementary program. The difference is in the learning methods and style. "
Each morning begins with an extended work period, allowing children to fully immerse themselves in deep concentration and important learning.
Children making choices for themselves: about when to work, when to take breaks, when to eat and socialize, and when to explore areas that interest them.
Teachers give lessons based on the developmental phase of the child; younger children receive most lessons 1-on-1, while older children who are socially motivated are given lessons in small groups.
Children engaging in a wide range of activities. This will include traditional academic work such as math and reading, but also activities like food preparation, integrated arts and movement, practical life skills, and so much more.
Teachers gently assisting children when they need help, but knowing when to step back and allow them to be independent whenever possible.
