“Children’s Growth and Development is our Business”

Our Philosophy
Our educational philosophy is strongly based on the theories and methods of Maria Montessori.  We believe that children construct knowledge based on experiences and that learning is an internal process.  Children learn best from hands-on opportunities.  We encourage children to explore, problem solve, and make sense of the world by using Montessori as well as non-Montessori materials.  Our classrooms contain a variety of manipulative, verbal, mathematical, linguistic, and play based areas.  Activities at Panda Montessori coincide with each child’s developmental needs: cognitive, physical, social, and emotional.  As children move to new levels of ability, there will always be more experiences they can choose in order to develop their skills.

Panda Montessori operates year round from 7:30am-5:30pm, M-F.   Panda is closed on the following days:  New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Summer Vacation (one week period TBA), Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving and the day after, December 24-26.

Small Class Size
Our low teacher-to-student ratios allow teachers to focus on the individual learning styles and needs of each child in our center.

Partnering with Families
Our teachers and staff want to form a strong partnership with you to ensure the best possible experience for your child.  Teachers provide daily communication with families and seek to understand your unique needs.
