Middleburg Montessori School

Specific Need

As we strive to provide quality education to this community, our student body broadens and family commutes lengthen. We are in need of a bus to help in the transportation of children to and from school, as well as school activities, and student planned events. 

Mission

We strive to foster independence and the love of learning in children from birth through 15 years of age. Our children will develop within themselves the fundamental habits, attitudes, skills, and ideas that are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning. This includes: a positive attitude toward school and learning, a sense of high self-esteem, concentration, abiding curiosity, initiative, persistence, inner discipline, and social behavior.

Profile

Middleburg Montessori School is a 501 c3 not for profit and recognized AMI Montessori School serving children 15 months to 15 years old in Fauquier, Loudoun, and Clarke Counties for over 35 years. Dr. Maria Montessori recognized and respected the natural interests and sensitive periods of learning present in children. The Montessori approach is holistic as students work and learn in various areas of the total curriculum: practical life, sensorial, mathematics, language, geography, science, culture, and movement. Through hands on, practical activities, children gain a deep, comprehensive understanding of their world and their place in it.

 

NOVEMBER 7th, 2015 we opened our NEW BUILDING, which includes space now for an elementary and adolescent classroom, as well as open space for community gatherings, music, art, Spanish Afternoons, and more! The Roots of our Philosophy - - Learning is active; children and adults learn best by doing. - Learning is self-initiated, not coerced by external rewards or competition. - Peace and cooperation are not just utopian ideals, but an orientation and skill set which much be cultivated at an early age. - Ultimately, a worthwhile life has significance to both the individual and society.

 

SPANISH IMMERSION In each of our classrooms there is at least one person who speaks Spanish with the children always. Through this immersive experience children are learning conversational Spanish. We feel this is an important aspect of a child's development, and later competency in our world. There have been studies conducted finding that bilingualism improves executive functions of the brain, allowing their brain to see the many alternatives to a problem and decide, which one is correct because they do this on a daily basis with their language.

 

Join Montessori professionals and other new parents to learn about Montessori from the very beginning of your child's life. Learn how you can follow your child's natural development and help prepare an environment that will allow for your child to reach his/her fullest potential while making life in the home easier and more peaceful!

 

NIDO and YOUNG CHILDREN'S COMMUNITY Fostering what Maria Montessori called 'the absorbent mind', students in the toddler program are given the freedom to explore in a child-centered classroom, where the adults facilitate and redirect a child's learning activities at the child's pace.

 

CHILDREN'S HOUSE COMMUNITY The goal of our primary program is to develop the fundamental habits and skills that are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning. The Montessori approach is based on a respect for the child's individual development path as described by Dr. Maria Montessori, nurturing intrinsic curiosity, and fostering independence, concentration, coordination, self-confidence, and sense of order. The children work in various areas of the total curriculum, which includes practical life, sensorial, mathematics, language, geography, science, culture, and movement.

 

ELEMENTARY COMMUNITY The elementary program reflects a new stage of development. The classroom materials evoke the imagination, aid abstraction, and generate a worldview about the human task and purpose. The child works within a philosophical system asking questions and pursuing independent research. Disciplines are integrated gibing knowledge a rich texture as well as depth and breadth.

 

ADOLESCENT COMMUNITY The adolescent community applies their academics through the micro-economy, community service, and adult professional mentorships. Students follow their interests through independent study and community engagement. Academic competence and true citizenship mean being highly involved with one's own education and with one's community. Currently, our micro-economy is the raising and selling of hogs.
