Our Philosophy

Children's Workshop is a happy, active place where there is much opportunity for social interaction. Children are given the
experience of working as part of a group, as well as individually. Through a spirit of cooperation, the children learn respect for others and for their differences. The staff is dedicated to nurturing a sense of self-esteem and competency in each child.

We recognize that children go through developmental stages, but not always at the same age or time. Our program allows for those individual differences by tapping each child's natural curiosity and desire to learn. Our low staff-child ratio makes it possible to support and guide each child by paying attention to individual needs and interests.

The Montessori philosophy and materials offer a sound learning foundation for intellectual growth. A calm and joyful atmosphere encourages productive activity. We offer freedom and choice within a prepared environment.

We are committed to the creative growth of each child. Art and music specialists provide daily experiences that nurture a child's spontaneous creativity. Artists and musicians from the community frequently visit the classes and share their talents. In all areas of the school, the emotional and physical environment fosters curiosity, inquisitiveness and discovery.
