Our Philosophy

The program at Courthouse Montessori School is based on the philosophy that each child is an individual who develops at his/her own pace. In order to help our children develop their fullest potential, we believe an environment must be created that encourages a child’s curiosity about the world. The environment should provide opportunities for the child to think creatively, to make decisions and choices within appropriate limits. Above all, a child should be in an environment where love and respect are shown for each child as an individual, and where all children learn to love and respect themselves and one another.


We believe the initials of our school, CMS, reflect three basic concepts of Montessori education: Concentration, Motivation and Success. On the next few pages you will get a glimpse of what you can expect to find at Courthouse Montessori School.

As children grow, they go through an orderly series of developmental stages that are typically the same for all children. However, the rate at which children progress through these stages can vary dramatically from one child to another.

The child can only develop by means of experience in his environment.”

~ Maria Montessori
