We employ a staff of compassionate personnel with pleasing personalities, lots of experience and high Montessori qualifications, guiding per Maria Montessori:
“Don’t tell them how to do it, show them how to do it and don’t say a word. If you tell them, they’ll watch your lips move. If you show them, they’ll want to do it themselves”.
At Breckinridge Montessori School we believe that a child’s environment should be simple and as natural as possible. This will stimulate the senses and develop his powers through activity so that he can soon master himself and all that is around him. Through their work the children develop habits of concentration, perseverance, and self discipline. Each child progresses at his own pace in a friendly, multi-age atmosphere.
