The New England Montessori School Story
New England Montessori School (NEMS) has been running a successful learning environment since 2001.
Throughout the years, we have implemented traditional influences into our Montessori curriculum. Our classrooms are filled with Montessori materials as well as Traditional Learning materials. NEMS also implements creative monthly themes to help extend the learning experience beyond the basics.
As true Montessorians, we believe in maintaining small ratios of 7 to 1 or fewer, allowing for the individual attention each child needs. In addition, we have "community time" between classrooms. Each classroom has whole group activities and lessons, as well as whole group recess.
The primary goal of NEMS is to meet the needs of love, warmth and security in the young child, by treating them with respect and understanding. Additionally, by setting realistic and consistent limits, the children are given the freedom to explore an environment that meets their developmental needs.
