Why Montessori at Arbor
Do you want your child to love to go to school?
- Do you want your child to develop a relationship with his teacher that is collaborative, strong and long-term?
- Do you want your child’s innate curiosity, imagination and naturally inventive and exploratory instincts to bloom and flourish at her own pace?
- Do you want an environment that acknowledges the differences in your child’s personality and rate of learning?
- Do you want your child in a nurturing environment based on mutual respect, empowerment and self-reliance?
- That is what your child will experience at Arbor Montessori School, the flagship of Montessori education in the Southeast.
A Montessori school is different from other schools. It’s not just that your child will learn all that she would in a traditional school plus a whole lot more. It’s how she will learn and how she will feel about learning for the rest of her life that makes a Montessori education remarkable and unique.
“Many people struggle with change; they are reluctant to let go of the processes that they know and are comfortable with. Montessori kids don’t see it as a struggle. They see it as a freedom when they find something new to supersede what they have already learned and to think differently.”
“A 2006 study of 112 students in a Montessori school and conventional public schools in Milwaukee found that the Montessori students performed significantly better on both cognitive and social measures….The young Montessori students interacted more positively on the playground and were more likely to deploy reasoning in social negotiations, often with appeals to abstract values such as justice and fairness.”
