“Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.”
~ Maria Montessori

Philosophy, Purpose, and Goals

Newport Montessori School promotes the teaching of Dr. Maria Montessori, who believed that all deserve the opportunity to become the most complete “person” possible; continuing her work, we are dedicated to growing the confidence, creativity, and strength of the children entrusted to our care.

Like the first Casa de Bambini that Maria Montessori opened in 1907 in Rome, ours is a “house” for children, not a classroom, but a “community”. It is a special learning environment designed for your child – to touch, experience, ST care for, and learn from.

At MMS, each child progresses at his or her own pace – free to choose work from a world of vivid sensorial materials and discovery tools. Our dedicated staff encourages independent thinking and individual learning. We work toward enhancing each child’s awareness of and participation in the “wholeness of life.”

Newport Montessori School’s method is based on the respect of the individual child and their growth and development timetable. Each day we strive to:

  • Awaken a love of learning, a passion for knowledge, and joy of creativity in each student.

  • Provide a peaceful, secure, prepared environment where children long to be.

  • Help children discover their abilities, find their independence, and develop their self-confidence.

  • Foster a strong sense of self, respect for others, and an ability to work as part of a group.

  • Develop a strong academic foundation and a repertoire of life skills in each of our students.

  • Create and provide programs that will heighten a child’s development through exploration and discovery with concrete materials while nurturing a natural curiosity and a love of learning.

  • Provide a reliable source of care, support, information, and training for families.
