The Montessori Early Learning Center and School of the Arts Elementary School
Our Mission Statement
We believe that every child is precious and unique with unlimited artistic, spiritual and academic potential. We believe that if given a safe and prepared environment, every child can become self-motivated and self-disciplined. We believe in the principals and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori who believed that the greatness of human personality begins at birth.
"We must leave the spirit free to develop, for this is the whole of our mission". Maria Montessori, 1934
