Southampton Montessori School is a private pre-school, kindergarten and lower elementary school for children ages 2.5-9 years old. It is an affiliate of the American Montessori Society and chartered by the New York State Department of Education.
Southampton Montessori School provides a nurturing learning environment in which students interact respectfully within a peaceful school community.
Enrollment throughout each three year cycle (3-6, 6-9) is encouraged so that students may learn at their own pace. A full spectrum of beautifully designed Montessori materials offer concrete hands-on experiences in each of the learning areas of the classroom; Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, and Geography/Science. Students are guided through the sequences as they achieve understanding and mastery at each level. Independence and confidence builds and self-motivation is maintained. Upon completion of the three-year cycle all students are competent learners well prepared for the next cycle or level of learning.
The young child has a strong desire to understand the order in the world and a unique ability to absorb new concepts.
