About The Hills Montessori

Our Mission
  • HillsMontessoriLogo-big

    We offer quality year-round childcare for infant, toddler and preschool age children.

    The Hills Montessori is committed to helping children reach their full potential by encouraging and fostering a life-long love of learning! We do this by providing an educational environment that is carefully prepared and designed to facilitate the development of a child’s independence.

    Based upon the principals of Dr. Maria Montessori, our Montessori environment offers a “hands on” experience allowing children to engage in activities that help them develop their cognitive, social, emotional and physical skills. Montessori education develops capable learners who not only know “how” to learn and solve problems, but also “love” to learn.

    Children work in multi-age classrooms as individuals, and in small and large groups. They are challenged to be independent as they explore a wide variety of subjects using specially-designed materials to teach specific skills.

  • Get to know the Montessori Philosophy

  • The Montessori classroom is divided into five curriculum areas.

    • Sensorial
    • Practical Life

      (Everyday Living Skills)

    • Math
    • Language
    • Cultural
  • The sequence of lessons in the different environment areas begins with the simplest level and proceeds to the most concrete level. In order for the lessons to have meaning, they must be applied to real life situation. The teachers create individual lessons based on beauty and simplicity, isolation to difficulty and simple to complex. This work is completed in a left to right motion, preparing the  child for reading and writing!

    The primary goal of the Montessori philosophy is to help children reach his or her full potential in all areas of life. It offers a sensible, structured system that allows children to develop at their own pace, using their own abilities, with the guidance of a trained teacher and the use of specially designed materials. The Montessori classroom encourages the development of respect for others and the environment, self-esteem and self-confidence, self-discipline, coordination, independence, and social skills. Students learn to work independently and in groups, problem solve, manage their time, communicate well, and develop creativity through music, art, storytelling, and movement.
