Humberside Montessori School is enthusiastically committed to the acknowledgement and support of the wholesome growth and development of all aspects of the human personality from the age of two and a half to fourteen years. This is accomplished through adherence to the educational principles of Dr. Maria Montessori. In this way, we can assist the child not only in their natural quest for knowledge and independence but also in their realization of their greatest potentialities. In doing so, we embody Dr. Montessori’s principle of education as an aid to life.
The Program and philosophy of Humberside Montessori School are based on the education method discovered and developed by Dr. Maria Montessori.
We are privileged to offer Montessori programs at three levels. The journey begins in the Primary level (Casa) for children 2 1/2 to 6 years of age. It then continues with the Elementary level for children 6 to 12 years of age, and then eventually proceeds to the 2-year Adolescent Program for children 12 to 14 years of age.
Every environment at each level is fully equipped with AMI-approved materials and is directed by a professionally trained AMI-certified teacher, specializing in the respective level.
It is worthy to note that because the Montessori philosophy is based on the natural, wholesome growth of the child during specific stages in their development, children must begin in the primary level at an age that will ensure the successful completion of the three-year cycle during their distinct stage. (This age is typically 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years old upon entry of the Casa level). It follows that each progressive level requires full completion of the level preceding it.
