At Camden Hill Montessori our mission is to create a learning environment that will prepare children to reach their full potential through exploration and curiosity and with their imaginations. We embrace individual differences and personalize learning for each child, fostering development through hands-on experience. Moreover, we nurture each spirit, giving each child the knowledge to make meaningful friendships and achieve future academic readiness. We provide an innovative environment to stimulate learning and emotional development while fostering a love for learning and encouraging curiosity. We facilitate critical thinking, character development and self-motivation, nurture confidence, and build a strong sense of community and respect for others.
At Camden Hill we value diversity, kindness, caring for others and treating others the way we want to be treated. We teach that making a difference in the community and the world is worthwhile. We believe that honesty is the best policy, even when no one is watching. We teach that the expectations one has for himself/herself should be above reproach. We work with dedication to make things better and we don’t give up. We teach innovation through critical thinking, the encouragement of questions and the creation of new solutions to problems both individually and as a group.
We believe that each child is unique, and it is our responsibility to foster independence and confidence in each student by preparing an environment that stimulates curiosity and exploration through the five senses. As educators, we can then use the learning environment to facilitate new experiences that develop critical thinking, creativity and problem solving. We believe that the best way to maximize each student’s learning potential is to adapt our methods to individual interests, strengths and developmental levels.
We are committed to celebrating each child’s discoveries with him/her and empowering him/her to learn more.
We welcome children 6 weeks to 6 years. For our Infant Program we focus on sensory and perception, physical, motor, and self-help skills, language, social and emotional development. Our Toddler Class, for ages 18 months to 3 years focuses on language, basic math, the 5 senses, art & music, motor development, self-help & practical life and citizenship. For older kiddos, ages 3 to 6 years, our learning focus is Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Cultural Studies, Music & Art Appreciation, Practical Life, Sensory Exploration, and Global Citizenship.
We appreciate all of our current families for selecting us to be a part of their children’s community and for the privilege of teaching them. It is our greatest hope that when your children, as adults, reflect on their childhoods, they will remember their experience at Camden Hill as one that prepared them for the future.
