The educational philosophy at Apple Montessori is based on and inspired by the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. Profoundly respectful of the child and faithful in the belief that all children hold within themselves an innate desire to learn, the faculty and staff at Apple Montessori prepare themselves and their educational environments to stimulate and support the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional growth of their students. Faculty members strive to understand each student and to use this knowledge in their teaching. The curricula and classroom environments are rich in content and material, prepared with enormous care, and appealing to the senses as well as to the mind. The spirit we generate, the physical environment we create, and the behavior we exhibit all contribute to making Apple Montessori a joyous place of learning and sharing for our students, their families, and our faculty.
