2016-17 School Calendar


At the Montessori School of Wooster we are dedicated to the Montessori philosophy, and to the fostering of self-confidence and creative thinking in an environment of peace, respect and compassion.  The teaching staff provide an individualized, hands-on approach to education helping each child to progress at her/his own rate.  Children learn to respect each other, their environment, and to begin to understand the importance of peace.

Our Goals

Stimulate the Child's Curiosity

Our classrooms are bright, warm and inviting, filled with intriguing learning materials; fossils, mathematical models, puzzles, etc.  Student work is attractively displayed on low open shelves.  Each week we change some activities to fit the ever changing needs of the class.
Nurture Individual Growth and Independence

We recognize that our role as teachers is not so much to teach as help the children to learn independently.  We strive to ask questions that challenge our students to discover the answers for themselves.

Build Confidence and Responsibility

We encourage the older children to develop an awareness of the needs of the younger children.  They are the role models for the younger ones and will often show them how to do the work.
Develop a Sense of Belonging to a Community

Learning how to work and play together with others in a peaceful and caring community is perhaps the most important life skill that we can impart to our children.  The school is like an extended family, where the children learn to take care of themselves and each other.
Foster Friendship, Love and Respect

Every day kindness and courtesy are vital practical life skills.  Even the youngest child is treated by her/his classmates with dignity and respect.
Create a Peaceful World by Creating a Peaceful Classroom

Children normally find it difficult to tell us and each other how they feel.  The peace table plays an important part in our classroom; two children having a disagreement will normally decide to retreat to the peace table to discuss and solve their problem.  Teaching peace involves finding a way to appreciate our differences and work together more effectively than ever.
