Welcome to Aria Montessori School. As we enter our 97th year we cherish the philosophies and influences that Maria Montessori bestowed upon us on her visit to the school in 1917. At Aria we believe that all children are born intelligent curious and creative and we aim to help each child develop these skills naturally in a sensitive environment. We endeavor to empower each child with self confidence and develop within them a sense of self worth and belief in their own ability to learn and retain new skills and information.

Aria Montessori School follows the Montessori method to deliver education to children between the ages of 2 years 10 months and kindergarten ready children. Before the age of 6 children are the most absorbent that they will ever be in their lives. Our role as teachers is to guide and observe the students and encourage them to be independent and successful learners. Our teachers build an atmosphere of calm order and joy in the classrooms and encourage the children in all their efforts to promote self-confidence and discipline. At each level of learning the teacher introduces and demonstrates the use of the Montessori material and presents activities based upon a daily assessment of each child’s needs. Knowing when to observe and when and how much to intervene is a skill that our teachers have developed during the many years which they have taught at the school.
Each child comes into the world with a unique set of abilities precious gifts and a beautiful personality ready to unfold. It is through exploration appropriate challenges intelligent choices and concentration on meaningful activities in life that the child develops fully and happily. The way for us to build a healthy happy and successful society is to meet the needs of the very young child in the most formative stages of development.
The parent is the first teacher and the most important element in the child’s life. Our task is to create a loving safe and healthful environments which support the physical emotional mental and spiritual development of each child. At Aria we encourage all parents to take an active role in their children’s education. We believe that children learn more when they believe that their parents are comfortable with the environment; seeing parents involved in the daily life of the school confirms this belief.
