The mission of the Montessori Children School of Port Jefferson, NY is to develop a well rounded student who is eager to learn, is self-confident, and is a contributing member of society who has the zest and skills for lifelong learning. This will be accomplished in a nurturing prepared environment utilizing a comprehensive curriculum.
Montessori Method emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. Children in Montessori classes learn at their own, individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities. Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.
Montessori classes place children in multi-age groups, forming communities in which the older children spontaneously share their knowledge with the younger ones. Montessori Teachers are prepared to foster all children to reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace with the best practices in efforts aiding the children's natural learning tendencies as they unfold in this "prepared environment" to aid the most profound young minds of the future.
During the month of May, we will be learning about the community and community workers, in the classroom. We are looking for any parent volunteers or community members who can volunteer their time to share their career choices with our students. Parents can help teach children about careers by sharing their knowledge and experiences. We are inviting parents to sign up and take part in the classroom if they are able. When parents come into school on their assigned day, they should arrive at 9:50 AM and wear or bring their work attire. We recommend taking about your typical day, child friendly games and presentations, hands on activities or visuals. Presentation should be between 10-15 minutes long. If you can, please bring along any special work tools or equipment to show what you do at work.
Montessori Children of Port Jefferson serves kids from all over Long Island including but not limited to the following areas:
"The first duty of the educator, whether he or she is involved with the newborn infant or an older child, is to recognize the human personality of the younger being and respect it."
