Wee Wings Montessori Preschool
Discovering Wings With Faith to Fly
Our mission is to approach the education of a child as an integration of body, mind and spirit.
We allow exploration and discovery, encourage independance and concentration, and model respect of self, others and the environment.
Our purpose is to offer an atmosphere where children feel inspired and compelled to learn by choosing activities tha are interesting yet stimulating.
We hope for children to learn through doing and to develop self motivation through small successes, along with a hunger to seek greater challenges.
We will strive to help all children reveal their innate interests and strengths and to suppor them as they grow into the persons they were born to become.
We realize the importance of the development of the spirit of each child and will encourage all to respect that spirit in themselves and others.
Wee Wings Montessori is open to any child regardless of religion or ethnic origin. Children must be at least 2 years 9 months of age and under 6. Children must also be potty trained.
