Belief Statement

Our belief statement articulates the basic tenet that:
Children have the right to a safe, nurturing Montessori environment which maximizes learning
Children are to be respected as different from adults and as unique individuals who are different from one another
All children can learn
Children will create themselves through purposeful activity
Intrinsic gratification is its own personal award
Education is a shared responsibility involving students, teachers, parents and community members
Learning is a lifelong endeavor

Mission Statement

We will prepare a safe and nurturing Montessori environment for all children while maintaining South Dakota Department of Education (SDDOE) accreditation. Our classroom community, including our families, will be one where mutual respect and empathy are modeled and respected. We will meet all students at their individual developmental level and inspire them each day to reach their full potential socially, physically, academically, and spiritually. We will encourage them to challenge themselves by highlighting their successes and assisting them as they refine their areas of difficulty. We will advocate for their individual and collective rights. Our classroom will be a joyful place where children can develop relationships and build self-confidence. Intrinsic gratification and pride in their accomplishments will be their motivation as they develop the love of learning. We will strive to make every day an excellent day for each student.
