The education program at Hudson Montessori School offers a unique experience for all learners from Toddlers through Middle School.
Our program utilizes the Montessori method based on a philosophy and pedagogy set out over one hundred years ago by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first female physician to graduate from the University of Rome. Her dynamic theories of education stemmed from her observations and experience with young children in Italy in the early 1900's.
Her method emphasizes the potential of the child and develops this potential through the use of a carefully prepared environment rich in specially designed materials. This provides experiences contributing to the child's mental, emotional, spiritual and physical growth.
Children are grouped in mixed-age classes that offer an opportunity for peer mentoring, collaborative work, and social interaction. The teacher (Director/Directress) acts as a facilitator or guide in the learning process. Through observation of the child, the teacher directs him/her to meaningful activity.
Emphasis is on inner motivation, using the child's natural curiosity and delight in discovery. All of this occurs in a nurturing environment, which builds upon the child's interests and offers activities that fit each individual's needs.
Our graduates transition well into the secondary school experience. Our students achieve success in high school as well as college, gaining admission to prestigious college preparatory and public high schools.
The Montessori method has withstood the test of time and today is considered a premier alternative learning program. Children who have attended a Montessori school are more confident in their abilities, motivated to achieve new levels of knowledge and have a love of learning.
