What is Montessori?

Montessori is a child-centered education method developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, and cognitive.

How much is school tuition?

Tuition varies depending on the program your child will be joining. This information can be found on our Admissions section above through our admissions platform, TADS.

What languages do you use at school?

The Earth School offers a bilingual English/French program for all students.  Some of our students do not speak either one of these languages upon enrollment, but in our experience, they learn quickly with the help of our teachers specialized in working with students of diverse national backgrounds. 

 

Elementary students prepare to take the French Ministry of Education DELF-Prim certificate test of French as a foreign language.
