From our Library:

“At Home with Tom and Pippo” – Oxenbury, Helen
Founded in July, 2005 our school is one of the loveliest and liveliest child care facilities in our area. We like to think of Robin Hood Montessori School as a place that children and adults consider their second home… a place where they are accepted and loved … a place where laughter and play are cherished … a place where children’s rhythms are caught and given warm response. It is our role to not only facilitate the learning of children, parents and one another, but also work as enablers to the important work of our outstanding Montessori Philosophy. We are pleased to embrace these roles.
We hope you will enjoy your visit, have all your questions answered and receive all the information you need to help you make the decision to enroll your child in our school.

The Robin Hood Montessori School is a non-denominational private school serving the educational needs of children 3 months to 6 years. The school follows principles that develop an identifiable mark of quality and excellence in education.  We are committed to the concept of Montessori education. We believe that facilitating the intellectual, physical, emotional and socio-spiritual development of the child is essential to the harmonious development of character and the progress of the individual and therefore mankind.
The goal of our program is to nurture the unfolding of the child’s potential by providing love and security, encouragement and appreciation of the child’s efforts. We provide a specially prepared environment where the child will find stimulation and the opportunity to learn by doing. This personal involvement and experience give the child a love of learning that he/she will take with them for life. By infusing the five human values that are fundamental to all human development – truth, right action, peace, love and non violence into our curriculum we establish a foundation in character which will be expressed in ethical personality, good self-esteem and strong confidence.

Our program is geared to meet the needs of each child on an individual basis with emphasis being placed on the child’s uniqueness. We provide a wide range of activities from which the child can select, thereby developing his independence by making decisions. The child enjoys a freedom which encourages him to express his creative abilities and master the skills necessary to build self-confidence and good self-esteem. This freedom is experienced within a structured framework established by the teacher with limits to provide security for the child and ensure progress in all areas of his/her development. Discipline is established in a firm but loving way, always emphasizing the positive and by using consistency in reinforcing simple basic ground rules. The aim of our educational program is to provide the scientifically prepared environment for the complete development of the potentiality of each individual child.

Essential to this development is that the child should feel secure and at ease. For this reason the classrooms are especially adapted to the child’s size and provide and attractive, bright and warm atmosphere in which the child can feel at home. Because human beings in the state of development, are capable of growth at four different levels: (1) motor-muscular, (2) intellectual, (3) emotional, and (4) socio-spiritual, the classroom is a prepared environment which includes all conditions, materials and activities conducive to the development of the child at each of these levels. This requires that children be grouped in what is known as “Family Grouping”. This also requires that the schedule of the day be organized as an “Integrated Day” of free activities. These lend the opportunity to the child to choose among several possibilities of being constructively and creatively active. It is through this free choice that a child develops his will power and sense of responsibility toward himself, his fellow creatures, and his environment. The scientifically prepared environment is adapted to the children’s age group or stage of development.
