By offering multi-aged classrooms rich with Montessori materials, your child will be actively engaged in their own learning process. Apple Montessori is directed by the Bailey daughters and their husbands. Mrs. Mooney, Mrs. Howarth, Mrs. Krippner, and Mrs. Lynn Morris Piccolo spend time at all of the locations making sure that our high standards for safety and academic excellence are ever present. All are deeply involved in the daily routine at the schools and oversee hiring, professional development, and curriculum implementation.
The philosophy upon which Apple Montessori School is based embraces the most fundamental teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. Our method is designed to build upon the individual skills and knowledge acquired in the pre-school and kindergarten years.
At Apple Montessori School, we believe that the school community is responsible for discovering and nurturing the unique individual potential of each child. Our curriculum provides a sound academic background while stimulating and challenging each child to meet his or her own particular needs and learning pace.
Our classrooms are rich with Montessori materials and supporting activities to promote intellectual as well as social growth. We instill through example and action a love of learning, a strong work ethic, creativity, respect and compassion for others. He or she can move through new challenging materials quickly, or on to another experience without the boredom of waiting for others to catch up. He or she can repeat these same activities until mastery is achieved. This can be done without frustration of being pushed ahead before one is ready. His or her own feelings of accomplishment act as a reinforcement to succeed. Every child carries within them the person they will become.
