”We cannot create observers by saying ”observe”, but by giving them the power and the means for this observation and these means are procured through education of the senses.” (Maria Montessori, Education in a New World)

Childhood is about studying bugs, stomping in rain puddles, asking lots of questions, seeing shapes in clouds, learning to play and share, and making believe. It’s about getting your hands dirty and then learning to clean them off! It’s experiencing life with every sense engaged and absorbing information at a dizzying rate. When children are allowed to be children, they are natural and voracious learners. With the right balance of freedom and guidance from the adults around them, every joyful exploration can become a powerful teachable moment. At West Hills Montessori, our Montessori-certified teachers know that the delight of experience is a child’s most powerful learning tool. So our program encourages exploration, stimulates curiosity, and teaches critical social skills such as patience, respect, and an appreciation for other perspectives. Our beautiful 18-acre campus has enough gardens, playgrounds and, of course, bugs to keep any young learner busy! The result: graduates who are intellectually curious, socially engaged, service-oriented, and ready for the next step in life. Because of our accelerated curriculum and effective Montessori techniques, our students, even those who have struggled elsewhere, are typically above grade-level academically.

West Hills Montessori is registered with the New York State Department of Education.
